Well remembered for her readings of Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, voice performer Lorelei King gives a stellar rendering of this action packed suspense thriller by Dana Stabenow. As narrative tension increases King keeps her voice at a steady pace, which tends to make what appears to be an impending disaster all the more terrifying. She deftly segues from character to character never giving in to distracting vocal techniques. Edgar winning author Stabenow has moved from her Alaskan settings to a kinder climate- the sunny waters of the Caribbean just off the Florida coast. Nearby is the Kennedy Space Center and it is here where the next space shuttle mission is to take place. What makes this launch unique is that it is the target of an amoral Pakistani terrorist, Akil Vihari, who hopes to hit America where it hurts the most. Amidst the efforts to track down Vilhari there is, of course, a love interest. We hear astronaut Kenai Munro describe her impression of Captain Schuyler: 'His eyes were very blue. Sailor's eyes. She thought he might be blond, but like every other male crew member she'd seen he'd shaved his head almost down to the scalp in preparation for sea showers on patrol and it was hard to tell. Come to think of it, he didn't look anything at all like Robert Redford. Robert Redford was a troll by comparison.' It's pretty clear where that's going and we can easily surmise what the outcome of the hunt for terrorists will be. However, it's quite a trip getting there as excitement abounds and surprises wait at every turn. Enjoy! - Gail Cooke

Most Americans take for granted the launching of the space shuttles from the Kennedy Space Center yet when something goes wrong like with Challenger the entire nation grieves. Thus a Pakistani terrorist with a personal grudge against the United States understands what blowing up a shuttle would do the country¿s psyche. He has lined up a loyal team of zealots willing to die for success and begins the alternate countdown as NASA prepares for the next launch.----------------- The FBI has heard message trafficking of a major attack soon, but not sure how or where they and the US Coast Guard led by intrepid Captain Cal T. Schuyler want to keep the Cape Kennedy area safe as that is a prime target especially with a VIP on board the shuttle.------------- Leaving Alaska for the waters off Florida¿s east coast, Dana Stabenow proves she is as good at a suspense thriller as she is at a Kate Shugak crime saga. The story line is action-packed whether the readers follow the astronauts especially Kenai Munro preparing, the terrorists, or the Coast Guard. Readers will enjoy this strong tale as Ms. Stabenow¿s second Coast Guard thriller (see BLINDFOLD GAME) may occur in warmer waters, but the danger seems as plausible.------------------ Harriet Klausner

While I really enjoy reading the Kate Shugak series, I've also enjoyed reading four or five of her other novels. This book, however, misses the mark by a long shot. The plot is very difficult to follow and the overwhelming number of abbreviations used just adds to the confusion. I kept wanting to put the book down, but I stuck with it thinking it had to get better. Well I finished the book and I am certainly disappointed. While I'm still a Dana Stabenow fan, I do not recommend this book. I look forward to the next Kate Shugak adventure!

I enjoyed all of the other books I've read by this author. Prepared for Rage had me wondering why I was even reading it.It's plot was too complicated to follow easily. The story went back and forth between terrorists and 'good guys.' I finished it because I had paid for it but I would not recommend it to anyone. Good thing it was a bargain book. Dana should stick to her series of mystery books set in Alaska.

As a sourdough Alaskan, Dana Stabenow's love for, and her knowledge of that great state comes through in every sentence. Her raw talent as a writer, and her passionate delivery of the written word separates her from the pack. She skillfully transports the reader into a world most of us would never, otherwise, visit. In short, this woman can write! So enjoy! Spike Walker
