"A nicely written thriller with clever, convincing dialogue features a marine biologist in the Florida Keys who happens to come upon a kidnapping-in-progress. His rescuing of the fair young victims involves him in a deadly international conspiracy. Narrator McLarty serviceably pulls out the tough-guy persona he uses so often on tape, giving us a clear, clean rendition. But he underserves the well-drawn characters and subverts the derring-do and suspense. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
