Set against the backdrop of the Islamic revolution, Follett presents the factual account of Ross Perot's daring plot to rescue two of his corporate employees from an Iranian prison. Morse's dramatization demonstrates an impressive range--no scripted voice goes uncharacterized (whether it's Perot's or some anonymous Iranian captor's). Morse enacts many of the novel's unvoiced narrative passages with broad emotional strokes colored by the fear, excitement or dread of the particular situation. Despite these energetic attempts, the reading ultimately fails to captivate, due in no small part to the abridgment itself; while long on names and places, it falls far short in elucidating cause and motivation.
