Mystery & Suspense • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Leo Demidov knows a few truths about himself: He is, at heart, a detective in Russia’s secret police, and he skillfully knows how to elicit information from his subjects. But when a family trip goes horribly wrong, his life is suddenly changed in every conceivable way. Methodically, an emotionally spent Leo seeks answers. Smith’s well-paced thriller winds its way over continents and through years. Dennis Boutsikaris alternates accents deftly between Russian officers, a Communist sympathizer from America, an Afghan woman, FBI agents, and others. As the author blends historical fact with fiction, Boutsikaris shifts between Russian and American characters, his voice guiding the reader along the thread that brings Leo to the story’s conclusion.
