Colin Harrison impresses critics and readers alike with his captivating blend of rich characterizations and masterful plot twists. Afterburn is an ambitious thriller in which the volatile business of organized crime and the high-stakes world of international commerce collide. Charlie Ravich survives brutal torture as a POW in Vietnam and becomes a millionaire player in global finance. But as he gets older, he fears his survival may be for nothing. His wife shows signs of Alzheimer's, his son is dead, and his daughter is unable to bear children. To continue the family line, he'll need to look elsewhere. Enter Christina Welles, whose ties to the mob endanger her own life and the lives of everyone she deals with-including Charlie Ravich. At times graphically violent, this smart and sexy novel builds the suspense to a fever pitch. Narrator Pete Bradbury expertly puts all the pieces together on the way to a shocking conclusion.

"It takes some stamina to get through Pete Bradbury's narration of this thriller, but it's not his fault. That's because Harrison's latest begins and ends with physical torture. In fact, this reader is so proficient at describing it, you can almost feel the pain. It's not enough that a young American flyer is captured and physically tormented by the North Vietnamese, but more than thirty years after he is rescued and "put back together," the now successful corporate CEO is again put to the test--this time by mobsters seeking information he dusn't have. Bradbury's appealing voice lends credence to his characterizations. The Vietnamese and mobsters are distinct and realistic. Bradbury knows how to build a harrowing situation and make the most of this author's dark, if not masterful, plotting. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
