Blackwater: The Rise of the World's Most Powerful Mercenary Army

Jeremy Scahill, Author, Tom Weiner, Read by , read by Tom Weiner. Blackstone Audio $32.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-4332-1187-4

Scahill's liberal horror story is about the company that has deployed many of the “private contractors” who have assisted the U.S. military in Iraq and been responsible for more than its share of death and disorder. Scahill, a regular contributor to the Nation , amps up the scare language in his study of both Blackwater and the wealthy, ultra-conservative Prince family that founded the company, but luckily, Weiner does not. With his booming baritone reined tightly in check, Weiner coolly and calmly delivers the bad news. The parade of scaremongering may grow wearying, but Weiner maintains his composure throughout, offsetting Scahill (to a degree) by virtue of his unyielding temperateness. Simultaneous release with the Nation hardcover (Reviews, Feb. 26). (Nov.)
