"If not for the silky smooth voice of Richard Ferrone, this would be just another story about the search for a long buried secret artifact and the eruption of life-changing consequences. Ferrone, a master craftsman when it comes to scene changes, shifts in an instant from the excitement of the chase to outright suspense. In this mostly predictable tale, you have the inevitable Middle East connection, the race against time with the villains, the evil doctor, and the disclosure of the prize. But at very least, you have a narrator who never misses a beat and generates more than enough excitement to last to the end. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
