Sean Barrett’s convincing performance sets the stage perfectly for this thriller involving Britain’s agribusiness and illegal foreign workers. Joe Verdi, an investigative reporter, goes undercover as a migrant worker to find the wife of a murdered Kurdish immigrant and discover the origin of a typhoid outbreak. Joe and his colleague, Ellie Mason, find out just how expensive cheap food can be. Barrett sweeps listeners into the dark underworld of human traffickers and is adept at the diverse accents and voices involved in this high-precision plot. As Barrett portrays the terror of the illegals and the brutality of the traffickers his cautious style allows listeners to absorb the intense emotions without being overwhelmed.
