Excellent thriller by a classic writer.
I liked it so much I bought the paperback and reread sections that I particularly liked. And, yes, I'd listen again...
Mr. Freemantle's thriller has an air of "reality" to it. A kind of truth. I believed it. The main character is filled with doubts and longings and vulnerabilities as she's thrust into an ugly world on a mission to get her fiancé freed from the grasp of Beirut hostage-takers. The steps she took, the fact that she'd even consider such a crazy mission, was rendered in a step-by-step believable process -- filled with nefarious characters and dark betrayals -- that held me spellbound.
Janet, the lead character, relayed wonderfully by author and reader. Ms. Wilds is an excellent reader. She reads in a clear, clean voice, crisp, with just the slightest of dramatic emphasis when called for.
Janet's longing for her fiancé, and then falling love with the man who comes forth to help her get him back! Again, utterly believable that, in such an emotional state, this could happen to any woman. Also many fine twists and turns that Mr. Freemantle is known for.
I like the fact that Audible is recording books written many years ago -- especially the works of fine authors. The library keeps getting bigger and better.
