Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

The specter of international terrorism is dramatically played out in a trans-continental chase. DeMille cleverly juxtaposes ex-NYPD detective John Corey against a Libyan terrorist, dubbed "The Lion." Narrator Boyd Gaines sets a fast pace from the opening scenes as a "no-radio" jetliner lands at Kennedy Airport. Listeners will want to stay with him every step. Gaines is smooth and fast with wisecracking Corey's sarcasm and equally believable with the icy fanaticism of the terrorist. The FBI, CIA and even the Secret Service take roles in the drama, giving Gaines the opportunity for lots of "law enforcement" voices. The romance of Corey and FBI agent Kate Mayfield relieves the high-powered action enough for occasional respite. DeMille's complex thriller is smartly delivered by Boyd Gaines.
