"Fans of Alex Cross will be pleased to see his story continue. Patterson's latest provides the familiar elements of murder and mystery but offers a new twist as the action moves from Washington, D.C., to the war-torn countries of Nigeria and Sudan. The audio presentation also attempts something a bit different with the use of two narrators. Peter J. Fernandez and Dion Graham deliver a clear, fast-paced performance and handle various accents deftly. Their voices, however, are so similar it's often difficult to make a sharp distinction between them. The production also includes music and sound effects, such as gunfire. The listener will have to decide if these add drama or create distraction. M.O.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
