9781593557874: The Face of the Assassin

The faceless are Paul Bern’s business. As a forensic artist in Austin, Texas, Paul painstakingly reconstructs the likenesses of unfortunate souls whose features have been obliterated by crime or accident. As macabre as his vocation may be, it has become a comfortable and lucrative routine - until the day a mysterious woman arrives at his studio. The visitor brings two gifts. The first is a human skull she has smuggled out of Mexico. The second is a staggering secret that brings him eyeball to eyeball with a past he never knew he had. Suddenly, Paul’s own government blackmails him into cooperating in a clandestine mission against a Middle Eastern terrorist group that has made the drug jungles of South America its staging ground. By using his own face as bait to lure the enemy, he will become all too intimate with the underworld of violence that he seeks to destroy, while thousands of lives hang in the balance of his intricate and dangerous deception.

From AudioFile:

Dick Hill, an AudioFile Golden Voice, expertly draws listeners into the dark and secretive world of blackmail and government cover-ups. As the story changes location and characters, Hill's intonation and accent also change, allowing listeners to effortlessly move in and out of foreign countries and the persona of the characters. The listening experience is further enhanced by the announcement of the number of each cassette at the beginning of the cassette and the announcement of the number of the next cassette is at the end of Side 2. This helps listeners keep track of their progress throughout the story. S.K.P. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
