The hero of this book is narrator Zachary Quinto, who makes a potentially confusing story simple and compelling. With a voice that sounds trained, he reaches right through the speakers and grabs listeners, making them want—no, need—to listen. It's hard to talk about the audiobook without giving up a massive plot twist that occurs early on. Suffice it to say that our hero, Tony Valdez, is a “dispatcher,” a man whose job is to kill people moments before their natural death. But draw no conclusions about his job; nothing is what it seems. Bringing the same intensity he brought to his roles in “Heroes” and “Star Trek” (as Spock), Quinto makes this very short work powerful. M.S.
