In another of Cussler's high-tech potboilers, a small band of heroes rushes from one intricate crisis to another in an effort to save the world and the Islamic religion. The latter is presented with objectivity: Some Muslims are terrorists; some are among the good guys; most just go about their business. The artifacts of Islam occupy a central role in the story. The jacket blurb describes J. Charles as having more than forty years of experience in entertainment, but his voice reminds one of emerging younger narrators such as Scott Brick. Charles distinguishes the players skillfully through accent and cadence. This is a fun listen. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
