About the Author:
Gerald Seymour spent 15 years as an international television news reporter with ITN specializing in the subject of terrorism. His first novel was the acclaimed thriller Harry's Game. He has since written 24 novels, six of which have been filmed for television.
Steven is one of a select group of readers who have narrated over 400 Audiobooks. Superlatives are many in reviews of his work, for which he is a multi-Earphones Award winner and twice nominated Audie finalist. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and has established an acting career on both sides of the Atlantic in Theatre, Television, Film and Radio Drama performing with distinguished companies in New York and London. He is a member of the internationally acclaimed company Complicite.
The ruthlessly evil title character is "Mister," the crime kingpin of London, who has expanded his drug-smuggling empire to postwar Sarajevo. He's followed there by British customs officials zealously eager to entrap and convict him, among them the youngish and mistake-prone hero of this suspenseful novel, Joey Cann. Were it not overlong, this audiobook would merit high marks because of the impressive professionalism of Steven Crossley, who, in frequent scene changes, captures characters perfectly and consistently, flawlessly pronounces Bosnian words, matches pace to mood and plot, and portrays with a chilling intensity the fear of all who interact with Mister, even his closest colleagues. A rich reward lies in store for listeners who stay the course. T.H. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
