In Haze, L. E. Modesitt, Jr., tells a story of interplanetary intrigue from the future.
The star of the novel is Keir Roget, an intelligence agency of the Federation, Earth’s Communist China-style totalitarian government. Roget’s sent to investigate the people of Haze, a planet that earned its nickname from the grey manmade cloud that protects it from outside scrutiny. As he investigates this advanced civilization, his thoughts turn to an earlier run-in with a group of terrorists in Utah.
William Dufris narrates with a deep, adenoidal voice, the steady pace of his narration slowing down as he brings dramatic life to dialogue.

This is one of the first books I have listened to prior to reading. I do not feel I missed anything.
The main character, Roget, is my favorite character. It shows a person willing to look at all sides of a problem while trying to stay true to his responsibilities.
He did a great job with every character. The tone used to differentiate fell true to what I perceived the character to be like.
Yes. I listen while commuting. I found myself waiting in the car at times not wanting to drag myself away from the story.
Well worth the time and money for a story well told.
