What if the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis had escalated into a full-blown nuclear war? Thriller writer DuBois poses a possible answer in this novel of alternative history, set in 1972, ten years after the destruction of New York, Washington, San Diego, and the entire Soviet Union. Jeremy Gage reads the story of BOSTON GLOBE reporter Carl Landry, who finds his investigation of a fellow veteran's murder stymied by the military dictatorship holding America in submission. Gage's performance is engaging and his reading precise, perhaps too much so; his diligent enunciation of every consonant can be irritating. Nonetheless, Gage forces the listener to attend to every word of this clever, exciting, and surprising novel. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
