The story opens with a rapid-fire introduction of characters in settings around the world, among them Cal Schyler, a Coast Guardsman on duty in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina; Akil, a Pakistani Muslim intent on avenging the death of his sister; and Kenai Munro, an astronaut at Florida's Kennedy Space Center, who is preparing to take a wealthy Middle Easterner into space. With her crisp narration Lorelei King keeps listeners engaged with the suspense and quick switches from a Schyler-Munro love tryst to the scenes of Middle-Eastern terrorist camps. King keeps the people, places, and motivations well defined with on-target characterization, particularly in her portrayals of Akil's terrorist mindset and Kenai's frustrations with her male-dominated professional world.
