Iris Johansen is the New York Times bestselling author of Pandora's
Daughter, Quicksand, Killer Dreams, On the Run, Countdown,
Firestorm, Fatal Tide, Dead Aim, No One to Trust, and more. She
lives near Atlanta, Georgia. Roy Johansen is an Edgar
Award--winning author and the son of Iris Johansen. He has written
many well-received mysteries, including Deadly Visions, Beyond
Belief, and The Answer Man.
The talented Johansens--mother and son, teamed for the first time--offer a rousing adventure that follows marine architect Hannah Bryson as she struggles to uncover a terrorist threat aboard a nuclear submarine, all in the name of tourism, of course. Though the plot is far-fetched, this thriller is read with passion and vigor by Jennifer Van Dyck. Her voice is steeped in mystery, creating an absolutely stirring and brooding atmosphere. Van Dyck's characters are each as original and thoughtfully crafted, her wide-ranging dialects ring true and bring an air of authenticity. Van Dyck's passionate reading serves the story well, drawing listeners into the tale from the opening paragraph. A St. Martin's hardcover (Reviews, May 12).
