"FBI criminologist Dr. Patrick Bowers returns in this action-packed follow-up to THE PAWN. Teamed with a profiler, Bowers investigates a series of San Diego-based fires, which lead to a hired arsonist, a secret government project, and a serial killer who films his victims as they die. Narrator Richard Ferrone delivers an engrossing, pulse-pounding performance that effectively delivers suspenseful moments. His rich, gravelly timbre brings realism to layered plot twists, and his vocal inflections distinguish the multiple characters. Listeners will find themselves catapulted into Bowers's world. Ferrone's dynamic performance is sure to please. A.L.B. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
