Foreign helicopter pilots are planning their escape from Iran now that the Shah has been removed from power in this novel derived from Clavell's 1986 bestseller WHIRLWIND. A Finnish pilot and his Iranian bride find their love being tested as they attempt to escape the political and religious upheaval that ensues. A barrage of nationalities must be managed in narrating this epic. John Lee delivers accents with precision and makes clear distinctions between characters. However, Lee's narration lacks the emotion essential to such a dramatic story. His monotone changes just slightly during a segment of thrilling action or incredible tension. Unfortunately, his reading doesn't give this saga the drama it is due. J.A.K. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
