Peters's creation offers multinational politics, greed, cruelty, and manipulation as the former Soviet republics strive to test their wings. Young American idealist Kelly Trost, daughter of a U.S. senator, volunteers in this treacherous region until she's kidnapped. Few have the resources to help before it's too late. Narrator Edward Lewis does a splendid job with the HUGE variety of accents. He successfully blends the brash with unexpected appearances of sensitivity. As the badly injured Kelly seeks help, the listener overhears sounds of excruciating pain and internal pep talks that keep her fighting for survival. Good "escapist" reading gives us the chance to glimpse far-away places. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
