"Jocelyn Cole, beautiful loner, and Gideon van Ry, handsome expert on nuclear weapons, are matched in a deadly race against terrorists intent on mass destruction. CRITICAL MASS is action packed, fast paced, tough and scary. Steve Martini presents a believable political scenario that continually shifts and an army of credible characters. The story has an atmosphere of reality that sends chills down our post-Cold War spines. Frank Muller adds to the feeling of intensity and desperation by reading almost the entire book in a breathy, urgent whisper. The quiet restraint of his voice, his rigorous control of pitch and volume render hair-raising moments nearly unbearable. This is a novel for our time with a deadly ring of possibility. L.R.S.
