While this story of revenge and bloodlust abounds with clichés and stereotypes, it should appeal to an audience looking for action. When Somali pirates hijack her yacht and kidnap and torture her daughter, wealthy Hazel Bannock, owner of Bannock Oil Corporation, turns to macho Hector Cross of Cross Bow Security to intercede. The power of audio is underscored in the graphic violence and rape scenes that become all too vivid. Narrator Rupert Degas superbly portrays a multitude of distinctive male characters, but his female characters are far less successful. Ultimately, they hinder the willing suspension of disbelief already demanded of the listener. M.H.N. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
