The 13th Tribe

Robert Liparulo, read by Daniel Butler. Oasis Audio, unabridged, 12 CDs, 14 hrs., $36.99 ISBN 978-1-61375-060-5

As chief of security at an archeological dig on Mt. Sinai, Jagger Baird finds himself pitted against a tribe of immortals, descending upon the world with powerful technology and a determination to punish sinners in the name of God. Questioning his faith, protecting his family, and trying to determine what is right, Baird must make hard decisions and deal with the fallout as he goes toe-to-toe with this 13th Tribe of God. Narrator Daniel Butler’s deep, raspy voice sounds like a long growl throughout this audio edition, and while he shines during climatic and action-packed moments, his one-note performance can wear on listeners. Additionally, the voices he provides the characters are limited. He rarely creates female voices well, and his male characters are often hard to discern from one another. A Thomas Nelson paperback.
