Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dennis Boutsikaris

Mystery & Suspense • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

A bus pulls up to the sidewalk, and as the doors open, an arc of electricity flashes, leaving behind burns, blood, melted steel, and devastation. An elevator stalls, and when a passenger presses the call button, he and other passengers are burnt by another flash. Someone is using the power grid—the electrical infrastructure of the entire Northeast—to hold New York City hostage. Rhyme, Sacks, and their team of investigators must track down who’s responsible. This installment in Deaver’s Lincoln Rhyme series introduces several life-changing elements to the quadriplegic criminologist. Dennis Boutsikaris’s narration is clean, smooth, and compelling. He performs with a cool edge that invites listeners to greater levels of tension. Electrifying in its writing and its execution, THE BURNING WIRE lives up to its name. S.E.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2010]
