    Something sinister is brewing. A chilling video has already cast its ominous spell over the White House situation room. Now scientists connected to the top-secret Sword of Allah project are dropping dead. Seeking to unravel the enigma, U.S. anti-terrorist agent Scot Harvath reaches England just in time to rescue British paleopathologist Jillian Alcott from al-Qaeda's top assassin. This expert soon confirms Scott's worst fears and triggers an adrenaline-fueled rush for survival.

    "Meh."
    Overall

    First, let me say that my issues are primarily with the reading of the novel, rather than the story itself. While not the most original, life altering work of literature, this book is precisely what I expected it to be; a relatively standard representation of its genre. Entertaining and fun. However, I found myself struggling to pay attention to the story itself because of the reader. While Mr. Guidall has a wonderful voice, I found it completely inappropriate to the character. The story you are hearing is about a man and woman in the thirties. Unfortunately, regardless what his actual age may be, Mr. Guidall's voice is that of a much more mature man. When one is denied the ability to see the speaker, the voice becomes their complete identity. I could not bring the reader's voice together with the character and it proved to be nothing but a distraction.
