I continue to enjoy working backwards from the most recent Philip Mercer novel through the Audible collection. I bought the first novel, Vulcan's Forge, as a paperback and just couldn't get through the cardboard cutout villain and plot, but de Bruhl definitely has definitely come into his own as the series lives and breathes. "Pandora's Curse" is a nice return to the arctic for those who remember Alistair MacLean's "Ice Station Zebra."
More than anything, de Bruhl's novels enjoy marvelous performances by J. Charles. Charles is so good with some voices, like Harry's, that I actually enjoy some novels more than others because I get to hear more of that character! Charles' performance here is marred somewhat by some really clumsy editing by Audible: there are occasionally shifts in tonal quality that made me wonder if I was listening to the same narrator! And so the missing star here is not for Mr. Charles, but for the Audible staff responsible for quality control.

Jack Du Brul's Phillip Mercer character continues to move up my Top Ten list of favorite characters towards #1. The excitement and adventures described in this novel have once again stimulated my curiosity and desire to hear more . It's an addiction that I now have that Jack Du Brul will have difficulty feeding. I would also be remiss if I didn't give credit to another great performance by J. Charles. These two men have found a great allegiance together. KEEP THE HITS COMING!!
