A kidnapped statesman, a soldier recalled to action, a pretty girl reporter, exotic locales, diplomatic crisis, dirty secrets all round--everything needful for an action thriller is here present, well done, and in just proportion. Christian Rodska fits the material perfectly. He projects just the right tone of masculine seriousness, punctuated by a nice array of character voices, including comfortable female ones. Rock-solid technically, he never distracts the listener with a hesitation, mispronunciation or misplaced emphasis. There is no novelty here, rather the comfort of a familiar dish, well prepared and impeccably served. J.N. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 00]
