Christopher Ragland is a versatile performer, and this thriller demands his skill. Once the head of a secret U.S. intelligence unit, Pilgrim is forced back into action to track the Saracen, a Saudi terrorist who is working alone to destroy America with smallpox. Ragland must voice Saudi secret police, an Afghan warlord, Turkish police officer Layla Cumali and her colleagues, a scattering of UK and Australian voices, not to mention many Americans. He does so convincingly, though occasionally his female voices are less than stellar. The book is carefully plotted, with the fast-paced action only taking off about eight hours in, but everything in those earlier hours is there for a reason. This is a tour de force for Ragland and well worth a listen. C.A.T. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2014]
