Val Davis’s intriguing thriller involves archaeologist Nicollet Scott and her discovery of a B-17 bomber in the desert of New Mexico--with the bodies of the crew still on board. Narrator Bailey carefully leads listeners through the discovery of the WWII plane and then the search for the identity of its mission and its crew. The varied cast of scholars, prospectors, power brokers and small-town folks makes for a lively story. Bailey does well with the story’s pacing and energy. She has a light touch with the character voices but doesn’t project enough menace in the bad guys. This is a good adventure and a nice addition for listeners who like mild-mannered mysteries.
