Professional reviews

"Here's a thriller you might recommend to a young listener and then listen to yourself. Written by the creator of the well-regarded Lou Boldt series, it appears to be the first installment of a series in which the protagonist is age 14. Steven Trapp, nicknamed Steel because he has a photographic memory, is off to Washington, DC, for a science competition. There he becomes involved in a situation that suggests a terrorist plot is afoot. William Dufris has an ideal voice for most of the characters. He's equally believable as a female FBI agent and the 14-year-old hero. When he revs up the action, he's at his best. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
