"Detective Alex Cross returns in an outstanding paramilitary thriller. The "mice," highly skilled Vietnam-era Army Rangers and a mysterious boss who controls each murderous scenario, bring inexplicable violence to innocent victims. Caught in the middle are military men wrongly accused, convicted, and executed by a misguided Army. With a Bogart-like no-nonsense persona, Peter J. Fernandez captures the confident character of Cross and reflects the gravity of the story's plot. Michael Emerson brings chills as he delivers an edge to the calculating, emotionless killers as they plan each murder. The background music and sounds enhance the presentation, and the accomplished readers add breadth and realism to the characters and cultures portrayed. F.L.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
