Description

-Featuring a conversation between Ron McLarty and the author Oliver Stone was once known as his country's most skilled assassin-but he's spent decades trying to leave that career far behind him. Unfortunately, his plans were not to be. The night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister, Stone witnesses a bomb detonate in Lafayette Park in front of the White House in an apparent terrorist attack. Now, Stone takes on a new, urgent assignment-find those responsible for the bombing. Along with British MI-6 agent Mary Chapman, Stone begins his search. But finding their target turns out to be a real challenge-and a potentially lethal one. Worse, it seems that the bombing may be only the first move in a vastly more intricate and far-reaching plot.

Professional reviews

"HELL'S CORNER is an engaging, perhaps overly complicated, story of espionage, terrorism, and betrayal in the nation's capital. Oliver Stone is too self-sacrificing and heroic and way too trusting, especially when it comes to the ladies. Simplifying the plot is almost impossible, since it morphs from one thing to another, but, briefly, Stone gets involved with unearthing an assassination plot. And that's like saying the Bible is about a bunch of people from long ago. The story is complex--but worth the effort. Ron McLarty is narrator and handles the male roles, and Orlagh Cassidy handles the female parts, a combination that gives a theater-like ambiance to the production. Cassidy is particularly adept at accents and characterization. M.S. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
