Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Combining murder and international intrigue, this audiobook grabs the listener and never lets go. Narrator Christine Lakin's performance is masterful because of her ability to create nuanced voices and accents that add to this thriller's memorable moments and characters. Arman Bajalan, a former Iraqi interpreter, is in hiding in Norfolk, Virginia, after an assassination attempt that killed his wife and child. Now a dead body has floated to shore at his favorite beach, and he believes it's a message for him. He convinces Detective Catherine Wheel that he's in danger, and the search for the killer that develops is riveting. Lakin handles the dialogue with finesse, smoothly transitioning among the characters and defining Bajalan and Wheel in ways that enhance their personas. D.J.S.
