    Overall

    Having been set up for the murder of Princess Diana in Paris, a freelance "accident man" (i.e. killer) hunts down the ones responsible. Including a lot of quite graphic violence, this audio book is certainly not for the faint of heart.

    Interesting story, even eleven years after the factual events in Paris took place. Certainly not giving any new insights to the death in the tunnel, it nevertheless is a captivating thriller, with a solid performance by narrator Stephen Crossley.

    "Excellent entertainment"
    Overall

    I read this book as a hardcover when it originally came out in 1995 and loved it. Now I had the pleasure of revisiting it in its audiobook version and was even more enthralled with it. As always with works by Nelson DeMill a well written novel, and a great reading performance by veteran DeMille narrator Scott Brick.

    This is a timeless, classic story of a three-way love affair, a thrilling novel that has aged well over the years. When an Ex-Vietnam vet and recently unemployed Government specialist returns to his rural hometown in the Midwest to meet again with his long-lost love of 25 years ago his mission becomes to rescue her from her abusing husband, who happens to also be the almighty town's sheriff. It may be heavy on stereotyping here and there, but it is a thrill to listen to - a somewhat unsual Nelson DeMille novel, but why should they always follow the same formula? Don't miss it!
