Terence Strong has woven a contemporary story of a criminal underworld of racketeers from countries as diverse as Libya, Malta, the West Indies, and Ireland. Ex-Royal Marine Billy Robson is newly out of prison, trying to go straight and rebuild his life with his family. Soon, however, he's taken in by a multinational terrorist group. Narrator John Cormack captures every accent, imbuing each character with the appropriate emotions, age, and personality. Listening to his performance is like listening to a multicast audiobook. Unfortunately, the story itself quickly descends into melodrama. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
