Summary

The year is 2001, and American businessman Roger Gordian has extended his reach into space. His company has become the principal contractor in the design and manufacture of Orion, a multinational space station. But the launch of a shuttle carrying parts for the station is sabotaged. Mysterious guerrilla attacks occur at the manufacturing facilities in Brazil and Kazakhstan. And Gordian's deepest fears are confirmed... The Orion project has been targeted by an international terrorist whose criminal enterprises thrive on violence and political instability.

Library Journal Review

Roger Gordian's troubles, which we heard about in Ruthless.com, continue in this work. Terrorists are out to get him, and this time they have a special microwave weapon. This clean, untraceable device cooks up some very big disasters involving, e.g., a space shuttle on the launch pad and a train in Brazil. The nonstop action in this story takes place in Florida, Brazil, and Kazakhstan. Like in Ruthless.com, the listener is given a great amount of detail concerning the weapons and equipment. Experienced actor J.K. Simmons displays his vocal versatility in this reading; he moves at a steady pace and is especially good with the narrative portions. For all action collections.ÄMichael T.
