The Silent Man
Alex Berenson, , read by George Guidall. . Penguin Audio, $39.95 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-14-314413-7
Former Edgar Award–winner Berenson returns with another top-notch spy thriller that is as realistic and unnerving as anything in the genre today. After his fiancée and partner is severely injured in an attack, CIA agent John Wells tours the world in search of revenge. With a cast of international characters, narrator George Guidall has a tough task on his tongue—luckily, he comes through with a rousing performance that captures the dialogue with ease and holds listeners’ attention from start to finish. Guidall’s tone is gritty, dry and speckled with an underlying sense of realism that makes this story all the more frightening.
