Mystery & Suspense • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

There are audiobook readers, and there are audiobook performers. In the case of this Ludlum thriller, Scott Sowers rarely goes beyond delivering a competent rendering of the text. Occasionally, he lends some emotion to the words to convince listeners that he is portraying characters. But mostly he just reads, which is unfortunate as Ludlum could have used some help telling his complex story of a spy who escapes from a mental institution and tries to prevent an assassination. The story calls for some varied accents and characterizations. However, Sowers fails to deliver. And the work is poorer for it. M.S. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
