A very dangerous man. That's Paul Kavanagh, an ex-Green Beret with nothing but time on his hands--until he gets an offer to steal a shipment of tactical nuclear weapons form the US government--and finds himself a partner, George Dattner, who has the cold eyes of a trained killer. Each of these men alone is dangerous. But anyone who tries to stop them together is guaranteed not to come out of it alive!

This is early Lawrence Block, but it's not bad. I've read a ton of Block, and enjoyed most of it. This is lacking the some of the substance of his later works that I have enjoyed (the dark detail of Scudder's world, the random musings of Keller), but overall a decent story in line with some of today's action movies.
This was the reason I wrote this review. Fred Sullivan is a good narrator. He's got good timing and character voices. However, his effeminate voice is totally mismatched to the story. Somehow, I could not get myself to believe that Paul Kavanaugh, ex-special ops tough guy, sounds like Harvey Fierstein
For a Lawrence Block fan, yes.
