    In this audiobook, read by famed narrator Basil Sands, Samantha Reid is back as White House Director of Homeland Security, dealing with national security threats of every dimension. She receives intelligence about a plot so staggering, it could imperil the nation's communications, Internet, electricity grid - even transportation and aviation. It involves the creation of an Electro-Magnetic Pulse ("EMP") that would "fry" all electronics. It could set us back to the year 1910. Meanwhile, her love interest, Tripp Adams, is sent overseas to a troubled region. Will he become involved in the plot?

    I really enjoyed the Bodman's previous story. I was put off by the terrible narration, but was willing to give her 2nd story a listen. Again, I enjoyed the story, but the narrator is not good. His voices for the women are a caricature, and dilute any strength the character had. I think it says a lot when I'm willing to listen to a bad performance for the sake of a new author.

    A call from Stella’s little sister brings the news that Stella’s step-nephew, Chip, has been threatened with serious bodily harm if he doesn’t settle his unpaid gambling debts. Stella makes the drive to Chip’s home in Wisconsin, only to walk in on a wee-hours dismemberment.

    Can't imagine what Barbara Rosenblat was thinking when she decided to narrate this. It was unredeemable terrible.
