After his fortune is stolen by the KGB and he's falsely accused of multiple crimes, Russian building magnate Alex Konevitch and his wife flee to the U.S. and rebuild their lives. But eventually, patterns in Alex's old life in Russia resurface, and the pair find themselves caught in the American legal system. Scott Brick channels Mikhail Gorbachev, the Communist Party leader at the time the story takes place. His deep, rich vocals and deliberate pace add to the dramatic tension that draws the listener into the story. Male and female character transitions as well as varying accents—Russian, American, and Southern regional—are smooth. Listeners will find Brick’s performance of this thriller, based on actual events, highly engaging. A.L.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
