A complex plot of revenge and twenty-year-old missile secrets entangles a former security officer and a discredited scientist. David McCallum's voice perfectly reflects the tension and pace of the story. Accomplished accents, a soft Scot's burr, clipped British speech, an American twang, are sparsely and subtly applied to differentiate characters. Both protagonists, Tannis and Harper, speak in the first person which confuses the listener, but the fragmented story line is linked by a deliberateness in McCallum's narration. This book is a challenging candidate for abridgment; the listener is caught up by the allure of the reader, then left confused by gaps and dangling subplots.
