This suspenseful story from the Gary Paulsen World of Adventure series uphold Paulsen's high standards of page-turning excitement and memorable characters. Thirteen-year-old Jesse and his friend, Robin, expose a crafty pilot carrying illegal cargo. Reader Jeff Woodman easily handles both genders and all ages. The soft hesitancy of young Jesse, menacing tones of Pete the pilot, and gruff concern of Buck are particularly noteworthy. A slight shift in voice renders characters feminine, but not weak and wispy. Woodman is a natural to relate adventure tales due to his talent with characterization and well-paced pauses that build suspense. J.H.B. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT 97]
