Mystery & Suspense • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

An Air Force plane transporting a Taliban prisoner is shot down over the Hindu Kush. A brutal winter storm sets in, preventing rescue, and crash survivors Major Michael Parson and female Army interpreter Sergeant Gold set out on foot across the unforgiving terrain to take the radical mullah to the authorities for questioning. Scott Brick’s narration of harrowing encounters with hostile forces; descriptions of the brutal cold; and Parson and Gold’s ingenious, utterly believable solutions to seemingly impossible situations is beautifully understated. From the mullah’s assertion that the storm is God’s way of assisting the Taliban to Parson and Gold’s capture by insurgents and the final heart-stopping battle between Special Forces troops and fanatic Taliban fighters, Brick keeps the pace breakneck and the story credible.
