Fiction • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The rough-and-tumble life of a Nigerian army officer is rife with drama, and Robin Miles narrates the dilemmas confronting Chike Ameobi. Her measured, steady performance underscores Ameobi's decency and inner battle to remain an ethical man at a time of upheaval. Miles's delivery excels during the lengthy descriptions of scenery and during Ameobi's interior monologues. She characterizes the villains with a deeper pitch and accents to convey the danger of corrupt army higher-ups who have no compunction about doing as they're told. Those who generally enjoy a more varied performance than this will nonetheless be compelled to stay with the story as the army officer hurtles towards his ultimate assignment: the assassination of civilians.
