The Nimitz-class carrier U.S.S. THOMAS JEFFERSON disintegrates in an apparent nuclear accident while on patrol in the Persian Gulf in 2002. Lieutenant Commander Bill Baldridge, whose brother was skipper of the carrier, doesn’t believe the tragedy to be an accident. In pursuing the truth of what actually happened, he embarks on a journey full of action, intrigue and suspense to such far-flung places as Scotland, Istanbul, Sebastopol and his family's ranch in Pawnee County, Kansas. The reading of this very exciting and detailed work by Guidall is creditable. His baritone voice is clear and easily understood, and he does a fine job reading the narrative descriptions. In attempting to give each character a unique voice and credible accent, he’s not as good; his readings of the voices are somewhat uneven, and some of his accents are unconvincing. (This reviewer cannot figure out why folks think rural Kansans sound like Southerners; they don't.) Still, this is a fun work to listen to.
