Hal Ambler, former Consular Operations operative in charge of "wet work," is now considered a security risk and confined to a secret psychiatric facility. The hospital keeps him sedated with drugs that dull his mind, slow his movements, and slur his speech. A sympathetic nurse engineers his escape. On the run, he learns there's a contract on his life, but his killer is shot instead, and not by him. Scott Sowers narrates what should be an action-packed adventure with varying vocal tones, inflections, and accents, but even good narration can't save this poorly plotted, ambiguous Ludlum story. This audio begs to be left on the shelf. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
