This gem of a book sparkles even more with its virtuoso performance by Scott Brick. A Libyan terrorist arrives in the U.S. to avenge a bombing mission upon his homeland, which killed his family. For starters, he kills a planeload of people. Then Assad Khalil systematically begins killing every former U.S. airman involved in the bombing mission. He is pursued by former cop turned anti-terrorist agent John Corey. From the beginning, Brick's reading is lighthanded and understated. He delivers the irrepressible Corey's one-liners with a humorous touch that seems to sometimes surprise even himself. Though meant to be a straight forward thriller, Demille's writing and Brick's delivery give it a surprising humor. And though Brick's foreign accents aren't perfect, he gets the lion's share of the praise for his super reading of this captivating thriller.
