Mystery & Suspense • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1997

Hit man Ry Caulder takes a contract on his teacher and mentor, Fredrickson, and after "killing" him twice, Caulder decides something is very wrong. With deliberate precision, Brian Emerson gauges his reading to convey Caulder's lonely, stark existence. His steady cadence adds to the slow but continual buildup of action and emotion. As events quicken, so does Emerson's reading pace, with his intonations rising and the tension increasing. Easily slipping into Fredrickson's German accent, Emerson just as adroitly performs various accents for secondary characters. He paces this intense thriller for maximum impact, bringing out every surprise. P.A.J. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 02]
