Meltzer follows his New York Times best-selling 2018 book The Escape Artist with another thrilling Zig and Nola novel. When military mortician Jim “Zig” Zigarowski, of Dover Air Force Base, is called in to ready Lieutenant Colonel Archie Mint’s body for his funeral, he encounters a shocking series of unexplained—and dangerous—facts about the dead man. In order to find out more, Zig must locate Nola, which is no easy task. Sergeant Nola Brown, the former U.S. Army artist-in-residence who figured so prominently in Meltzer’s earlier work, has many people trying to figure out who she is, where she is, and how they can find her. While Zig and Nola share a tragic history, they are uniquely situated to unravel the disparate threads that tie this mystery together. Scott Brick’s narration, delivered in his rich tenor voice, is enthralling, capturing the energy and momentum of this exciting book.
VERDICT This exceptional audio will have listeners wanting more and hoping that the next installation won’t take long. Highly recommended.
