Some listeners avoid British audio thrillers because they say the narrations are dry and boring. This latest by McNab as read by Clive Mantle proves they're dead wrong. Right from the beginning you're on the edge of your seat, and neither the plot nor the reader lets up. When SAS operative Nick Stone nixes a planned assassination, he's told he must complete the job or his 11-year-old ward will be killed. The first tape meticulously describes the attempt on the intended victim, and Mantle, a Michael Cain sound alike, has your complete attention. The end comes all too soon. A.L.H.
