The plot of Reich’s novel begins like a run-of-the-mill spy tale, and the narration at first seems a bit slow. Then, before you know it, both take off, and you're hooked. Paul Michael portrays Dr. Jonathan Ransom, a surgeon whose wife is killed in an Alps climbing accident. Soon after, Ransom learns his spouse had a life unknown to him—and possessed some deadly secrets. Before long, Ransom is propelled into a world of subterfuge, suspected terrorism, and potential nuclear war. Michael plays Ransom boldly. His announcer-like voice demands attention. He's at his best describing a chilling sequence of events that end when Ransom awakens from a nightmare. Michael's foreign accents are particularly noteworthy. This is one of Reich's best, and, as narrators go, Michael rules! A.L.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
