Martin Fletcher, , read by Stephen Hoye. . Tantor Audio, $34.99 (0pp) ISBN 978-1-4001-0723-0

Fletcher's experience as a seasoned foreign correspondent provides substance in this intriguing and somber audio. Finding himself in the middle of conflicts, wars and other devastating predicaments, Fletcher, NBC's Middle East correspondent and Tel Aviv bureau chief, brings a brutal honesty to his prose that reveals some of the moral challenges faced by those who report these events. Grappling with the age-old field reporter's conundrum—do something or simply observe—Fletcher concludes that there is no easy answer because both come with unwanted consequences. Stephen Hoye's strong projection and soft tone matches Fletcher's somber and frank words. A Thomas Dunne hardcover (Reviews, Jan. 14). (June)
