Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Another ancient mystery is uncovered that could gravely affect the modern world: A voyage undertaken by imperial China might be used to support an Argentinean claim to a gigantic Antarctic oil field—regardless of the terms of the international Antarctic Treaty. From there, the story leaps from one cliffhanger to another. Scott Brick is a master of accents and pacing. Unassisted by music and sound effects, he brings listeners straight into the core of the story—we even feel sorry for the villains. Brick has a subtle way of jacking up the tension with the smallest changes in intonation, and boy, does he use that talent here! D.R.W. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
