When Greg Rucka's first novel, Keeper, was published, readers were immediately fascinated by its hero. Alert and skilled, bodyguard Atticus Kodiak could protect his clients from almost any danger, but he sometimes fell prey to his own emotions. This combination of toughness and vulnerability attracted even more fans in Finder. Now, in Smoker, Atticus is about to meet his most elusive foe. The job sounds straight enough: test the security of the crew protecting a key witness in a landmark case against a tobacco company. All Atticus has to do is make sure there are no holes in their surveillance. But one of the ten most dangerous contract killers in the world is training his sights on both the witness and Atticus. Greg Rucka cranks up the suspense as the boundary between hunter and target begins to blur. Spiced with the latest technological tools of the security trade, zinging with split-second decisions, Smoker is enhanced by narrator George Wilson's superb dramatic performance.

Professional reviews

"SMOKER is an enjoyable tag-along with Greg Rucka's savvy bodyguard, Atticus Kodiac. This time Atticus teams up with the equally clever and mayhem-prone daughter of the owner of a competing "personal protection" firm. Their assignment is to stop an assassin's attacks on the star witness against a big tobacco company. Nobody in this caper, including Atticus's employer, is what he or she seems. It's a good story, but one that needs to be read with a lighter touch and faster pace than narrator George Wilson delivers. Wilson nevertheless holds one's attention. He is particularly effective in capturing the "crusty geezer" personality of the assassin's target. K.C. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine"
