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.

Professional reviews

"Vietnam Vet and former POW Charlie Ravich, now CEO of a telecommunications firm, is embroiled in mergers and trade with China when he meets Christina. She is just released from prison and running from the Mob. Patterson attempts to keep the story lines together; however, the abridgment has so severely disjointed the plot that the various themes never merge. The graphic torture and violent sex scenes Harrison uses to move the story along are made more vivid and gruesome by Patterson's emotionally disconnected narration. The surprise conclusion leaves the listener wondering how the book ended. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
