Library Journal -Jake Grafton and Tommy Carmellini team up again in this tense and action-packed thriller set in the Horn of Africa. A cruise ship is hijacked by Somali pirates demanding a ransom of $200 million for the crew and passengers. After an initial rescue attempt fails, an informant provides intel about a much more serious conspiracy connected to the piracy, and Jake, Tommy, and some Navy SEALs must save the day. Eric G. Dove’s performance is spirited and expressive. He gives all of the many characters believable accents, from British and German to American and Somali. The narrative is read with an equal verve and expression.
Verdict Recommended for listeners who enjoy nonstop action. [“Coonts’s latest Grafton and Carmellini adventure (after The Disciple and The Traitor) is tense, timely, exciting, and totally enjoyable. Even though part of a series, the novel stands alone more than nicely,” read the review of the St. Martin’s hc, LJ Xpress Reviews, 4/26/13.—Ed.]—Michael T.
