9780099536963: The Silent Man

After two high-risk missions, CIA special agent John Wells is living on the edge, his nights filled with disturbing dreams. He knows he has no time for rest - and he has made many enemies. But what happens next shocks him to the core. First, he is targeted by assassins sent by a psychotic arms dealer out for revenge. His girlfriend is left for dead. Then, in vengeful pursuit of his assailants in Moscow, he stumbles on a terrifying plot. Terrorists have successfully targeted Russia's nuclear complex and are planning an attack on America's shores. With the clock ticking, Wells realises that to stand a chance of preventing it, he mustn't let a personal vendetta get in his way - the future of the West depends upon him.

From AudioFile:

THE SILENT MAN is a nightmare about what could happen if a group of Muslim jihadists were able to smuggle a working nuclear warhead into the United States and had the knowledge of how to explode it. George Guidall squeezes every drop of excitement out of Alex Berenson's thriller. With his unique style Guidall makes the listener feel the fear and desperation that drive CIA agent John Wells, who believes that if he doesn't find and disarm the bomb in time, a catastrophe will occur during the president's State of the Union speech. And he's right. Guidall's rock-steady performance, with just the occasional hint of urgency, elevates a superb novel to even greater heights. M.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
