Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Douglas Preston pulls out all the stops in this thriller. While the characters and situations are stock science fiction—involving strange natural phenomena appearing all over the Solar System—Preston packages them in a plot intricate and timely enough to keep the listener engaged. Scott Sowers demonstrates the proficiency that has earned him a reputation as an accomplished narrator. His skillful use of volume and pace delivers intensity and drama while keeping the scene and character transitions clear and easy to follow. Minor flaws in this strong performance that will grate on the Downeast ear are his inability to accurately duplicate the region's accent and the repeated mispronunciation of a prominent location in the story, Damariscotta, Maine. Overall, however, Preston and Sowers fans will find much to enjoy. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2010]
