OrangeReviewStarEdgar and Shamus award nominee Rosenfelt, author of the Andy Carpenter series, presents his third stand-alone novel, following Down to the Wire (2010), also available from Listen & Live Audio. Richard Kilmer is a journalist on the trail of a potential Pulitzer Prize-winning story when Jen enters his life, and everything changes. Then she suddenly disappears without a trace, and his search for answers leads him to uncover a diabolical plot to create and sell a mind-control device to the highest bidder. In this thriller that will keep listeners guessing, the characters are well crafted, and a trail of creative red herrings moves the story toward its Hollywood-esque ending. Stage actor Chris Ensweiler reads with feeling, providing an excellent range of voice and emotion. Strongly recommended for fans of mysteries and thrillers. [The Minotaur: St. Martin's hc also received a starred review, LJ 1/11.—Ed.]—Joanna Burkhardt, Univ. of Rhode Island Libs., Providence
