Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“There’s a lot more to this plot, and the narrator’s performance, than first meets the ear…there’s an edge to Lenson, played to the hilt by Ray Porter, that doesn’t materialize until you’re halfway through this thriller…Porter conveys every emotional instant without missing a beat.” AudioFile
“Poyer remains the most thoughtful of the military-thriller set and a master of authentic detail.”  Kirkus Reviews
“Poyer’s more interested in story and character than in slam-bang action, and that’s a good thing because when the action does kick in, we care enough about the characters to follow them into danger.”  Booklist
