When he inadvertently kills a young boy in a seeming exercise, Julian discovers that the wars of the twenty-first century, though fought by robots controlled by technicians hundreds of miles away, are no more antiseptic than wars ever were, but are equally senseless and cruel. From that point on, he struggles to disengage himself. But he finds that he can't--without short-circuiting the whole process of war. George Wilson narrates this sci-fi mystery with a jaded, cynical tone that matches the embittered mood of the protagonist. His female voices, however, sound affected and stilted. They distract the reader and mar an otherwise entertaining reading. P.E.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
