Review
  • AUDIOFILE Golden Voice George Guidall turns in another masterful performance in Edgar Award winner Alex Berenson's second novel focusing on CIA agent John Wells. Guidall strikes not a false note as Wells sets out to defuse a potentially explosive situation. After a CIA extraction goes bad in North Korean waters, the powers that be realize there's a mole in the intelligence network. Wells, who recently foiled an Islamic terrorist plot in Times Square (THE FAITHFUL SPY) and who is at the top of Bin Laden's hit list, must return to Afghanistan to ferret out the mole. Guidall's facility with international accents and his ability to ramp up the action while creating three-dimensional characters with the slightest nuance make Berenson's taut, smart writing frighteningly plausible. S.J.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
  • Seasoned narrator Guidall takes listeners on a global journey of espionage and intrigue, breathing life into CIA agent John Wells, whose voice teems with emotion. Wells’ assignment involves ferreting out a CIA mole, and the tenseness of the task is evident in Guidall’s terse tones. When it becomes clear that the mole is selling secrets to the Chinese, and Wells tries to recover a CIA undercover agent in North Korea, Guidall instills Wells’ voice with carefully placed pauses. These pauses highlight Wells’ confusion and despair at the realization that a conflict between world powers may be imminent, and there seems to be nothing he can do to stop it. Berenson’s follow-up to The Faithful Spy (2007) is a winner. -- Melnick, Sheri (Reviewed 5/1/2008) (Booklist, vol 01, number 17, p56)
