Stabenow's 9/11 spin-off posits a dirty bomb attack by mercenaries who are headed to Alaska aboard a Russian fishing boat. Alaska-native Stabenow delivers a predictable plot involving married heroes Hugh Rincon, a CIA agent, and Sarah Lange, a Coast Guard commander assigned to patrol the U.S. border in the Bering Sea. Beth McDonald's narration leaves you wondering if the story would be better read by a man since most of the characters are men. Her delivery of some of the male character voices sounds inappropriately arrogant. McDonald also lacks dramatic flair. She doesn't get excited until the final scenes, which, even in the abridged version, is too long to wait. D.J.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 06]
