As the audiobook market enlarges, publishers are reviving earlier titles of successful authors. John J. Nance's SCORPION STRIKE is one such offering. The story takes place just after Operation Desert Storm ends when a run away Iraqi scientist reveals Saddam Hussein is about to unleash "the mother of all biological weapons" on an unsuspecting world. Nance's thriller is exciting but predictable. Brian Emerson's reading is more than satisfactory, but his matter-of-fact voice is not charged with the excitement the book engenders. Nonetheless, neither the story nor Emerson strikes out. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
