Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

The Jeffersonian code? A hidden message from the early president to Merriweather Lewis may reveal the age-old secret that links a Phoenician statue to the legend of the Queen of Sheba. Solving that riddle may save the life of a UNESCO representative. Richard Ferrone's tough, gravelly voice adds an extra layer of menace to action scenes and description, making the abridgment move swiftly. However, Ferrone makes some accents a little too thick. There's also a long setup, which makes it seem like it takes heroes Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala too long to turn up. The plot involving a secret message may be familiar, but the latest National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) adventure moves briskly enough to satisfy adventure fans.
