Helpful Score: 1
A modern day suspense novel about a US-France-China showdown with help being provided by a couple of very resourceful Brits. Very likable characters and a story line that keeps you involved through 14 CDS. A highlight is the narrator who brings each character to life through using different voices/accents. Very enjoyable to listen to.

This was the first book from Ted Bell that I read/listened to. I found the plot pretty plausible and intriguing scenarios. Echos from the past - namely alliances & nationalism that helped kick off WW I - have the current day world caught off guard. Seemingly uncharacteristic behaviors of so-called allies have spies and diplomats scratching their heads . Hong Kong, Oman, Africa, France, USA, & UK are sites visited throughout this story line. Though the unabridged audio book is 14 discs long, my attention was held throughout. I enjoyed this selection very much, and believe I will try others by Mr. Ted Bell. **One incorrect fact that has stuck with me (the audio version at least has it), is that it states that the Tienanmen Square protests happened in 1986 -- not 1989.**
