Robert Littell’s new novel, The Company, is a superb thriller about the CIA and the KGB, and Scott Brick’s flawless performance enhances the book’s intensity. The story begins during the infancy of the Cold War and ends roughly 40 years later. It is an intricate tale of heroes and villains, love and deceit, honor and disgrace, impressively intertwining fictional characters with actual historical events. Brick’s use of accents, particularly his superb Russian voices, gives every character a unique--and distinct--voice. No matter what the situation, Brick’s performance fills the moment, allowing the seemingly seamless abridgment to flow with unrelenting vigor. D.J.S.
