The sequel to Neville’s ground-breaking epic thriller THE EIGHT continues the cosmically significant quest for a mystical chess service in a story that spans hundreds of years and three continents. Due to its plethora of intertwining plots, historical characters, enigmas, and ciphers, THE FIRE is perhaps best delivered as an abridgment. The thrilling global adventure taps such a multitude of linked clues that the listener might easily lose concentration or forget solutions to earlier puzzles if listening to the unabridged work. Narrator Susan Denaker is gifted not only with the ability to pronounce multiple languages, but also to speak English with their accents—Arabic, Slavic, German, Italian, Spanish, Latin, British, Russian. . . . All is accomplished with sharp diction and a firm grasp of the Game's manifold players. A.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2008]
