A historic summit meeting among the G-7 countries, including, for the first time, the People's Republic of China, will be held aboard the majestic QE2; that is, if a terrorist attack by hard-line Maoists can be thwarted. Filled with heroes and villains, action and romance, this thriller also offers plenty of military detail to satisfy those who prefer this genre. Prichard's tempo enables the listener to follow the complex plot with ease. For the most part, he narrates with little vocal differentiation; but when he attempts to voice British and Scots characters, he's not very successful. He neither gets the accents right nor is able to sustain them. Nonetheless, his precise diction and low-key style are perfectly suited to the tension-filled story.
