Publisher's Summary

Two officers from the American troops stationed in Caserta, Italy, not far from Naples, have been found murdered. The MOs are completely different, and it seems like the officers had no connection to each other, but one frightening fact links the murders: each body was discovered with a single playing card: the Lieutenant, the 10 of hearts; the Captain, the jack of hearts. The message seems to be clear: If the murderer isn't apprehended, the higher ranks will be next.
Billy is sent to Italy for the investigation, which grows increasingly sinister. But he has other things on his mind, too. His girlfriend, Diana, is on a very dangerous spy mission, and Billy doesn't know when - or if - he'll see her again. To make matters worse, Billy's just learned that his baby brother, Danny, is being sent over to Europe as an infantry replacement, an incredibly dangerous assignment. And all around him, he sees GIs suffering from combat fatigue preparing for another battle. As the invasion at Anzio begins, Billy needs to keep a cool head amidst fear and terror as the killer calculates his next moves.

Different Narrator

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The narrator changed. While he may be very good I was confused. The charecters that I knew didn't sound the same. I couldn't follow the story because of this. I didn't listen to more than 2-3 chapters.

What was most disappointing about James R. Benn’s story?

I didn't follow the story because Billy Boyle wasn't the same.

How could the performance have been better?

Keep the original narrator.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

No. I couldn't follow the story and didn't finish the book.

Skip books 6 & 7

What would have made A Mortal Terror better?

Woeful narration. Voice is wrong and pace off. Wait for Marc Vietor to return.

What did you like best about this story?

Good story

Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Berkrot’s performances?
