Robert Crais, author of the Edgar Award-nominated L.A Requiem is a master of the intelligent and complex suspense novel. In Demolition Angel he delves into the life-on-the-edge world of the Los Angeles bomb squad. Three years ago Carol Starkey was one of L.A.'s best bomb squad technicians. Then a freak accident while disarming a bomb left her scarred inside and out. Now a Detective-2 with the LAPD's Criminal Conspiracy Section, she is struggling to rebuild her shattered world. When an explosion claims the life of a technician who was a colleague and friend, Carol is assigned to head up the investigation. With the help of an ATF agent, she discovers that a brilliant madman is designing bombs intended to kill the people whose job it is to disarm them. But as they begin their chase of the man known as Mr. Red, Carol finds that nothing about the case is as it appears. All she knows for certain is that she is the next target. With finely drawn characters and non-stop suspense, Demolition Angel is an unforgettable experience. Paul Hecht deftly conveys both Carol's determination and fear as she fights to reclaim her life.

"The excitement generated by this author and reader combination is almost as explosive as the plot. The "angel" in this story is Carol Starkey, an L.A. detective and former bomb-squad technician who was pronounced dead and then revived at the scene of an explosion. Starkey, now an alcoholic, and a male ATF agent pursue a serial bomber, Mr. Red, who focuses his efforts on killing bomb-disposal technicians. Paul Hecht is solid as the cop and dynamite as the brilliant but mad Mr. Red. The listener's only complaint with Hecht is his too-long pauses between some chapters--often the pause is so long the listener thinks the tape is over. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
