Mystery & Suspense • 12.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Boyd Morrison brings his army combat engineer, Tyler Locke, back with this follow-up to THE ARK, and Boyd Gaines returns to perform the narration. In this adventure, Locke is thrust into life-or-death predicaments along with a classical languages scholar, Stacy Benedict, as they are forced into helping Italian Mafia rivals find the golden treasures of King Midas. Gaines provides a clear, solid performance, portraying the varied international characters skillfully as the story winds through Italy, Germany, and Greece. His command of character development corresponds with the intrigue and complexity of the story, but several times he falls short in matching the pacing to the suspense. Listeners expecting a roller coaster may find that they are on a Ferris wheel—stimulating but without the speed. K.C.R. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2011]
