New York Times best-selling author of The Last Templar Raymond Khoury is also an acclaimed screenwriter and producer known for his hit BBC series Spooks. On a typical Baghdad day in April of 2003, elite elements of the First Cavalry Division stealthily surround their objective-the cement compound of a mysterious Westerner that terrified Iraqis call Hakeem, "The Doctor." After neutralizing fierce resistance and seizing the compound, U.S. troops find haunting evidence of unspeakable experimentation-but no sign of the ghastly doctor himself.

"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"
