On a cold, bleak day in 1916, all hell breaks loose in a mining pit in the Ural Mountains. Overcome by a strange paranoia, the miners attack one another, savagely and ferociously. Minutes later, two men-- a horrified scientist and Grigory Rasputin, trusted confidant of the tsar-- hit a detonator, blowing up the mine to conceal all evidence of the carnage. In the present day, FBI agent Sean Reilly' s search for Reed Corrigan, the CIA mindcontrol spook who brainwashed Reilly' s son, takes a backseat to a new, disturbing case. A Russian embassy attachE seems to have committed suicide by jumping out of a fourth-floor window in Queens. The apartment' s owners, a retired physics teacher from Russia and his wife, have gone missing, and further investigation reveals that the former may not be who the FBI believe him to be.

"Richard FerroneÕs narration adds just the right hint of the sinister to this story of mind manipulation. In 1916, in a mine tunnel in the Urals, a group of miners goes berserk and begins killing one another. Above ground, Grigory Rasputin and Òa man of scienceÓ push a button and the mine explodes. Fast-forward to the present day and, in Raymond KhouryÕs latest Sean Reilly adventure, ReillyÕs still trying to find the CIA agent who brainwashed his son. When a Russian diplomat jumps, or was pushed, to his death from his Queens apartment, ReillyÕs personal mission is put on hold as he investigates. FerroneÕs layered performance creates an atmosphere in which darkness hovers, and when shocking secrets are revealed, his intensity is catching. Exciting listening.
