Admiral Jake Grafton arrives in Hong Kong on the eve of a revolution against the Chinese Communists in this novel, which uses a provocative political "what if" as its starting point. When Grafton's wife is kidnapped by a criminal searching for a hot tape, Grafton joins the fray in search of her, leaving a bloody trail of bodies in his wake. This abridgment mostly steers away from the political background, concentrating on the fists and bullets. Michael Cumpsty reads briskly in a tough, matter-of-fact voice that's a good match for the constant action. Though predictable, this audio holds attention throughout. J.A.S.
