Bandit Six and his band of soldiers are trapped in Iran in 2019 when the world is plagued by a series of disasters. First, a pandemic flu kills up to 60% of the population and then a mini ice age brings snows to Saudi Arabia. Left behind to secure a military base, Bandit Six and his men fight their way back from Iran to Turkey and then to the U.S. Dan John Miller's delivery is perfect for this no-punches-pulled first-person narrative by Bandit Six, the Last Centurion. Laced with crude language and dark images of the future, Miller's reading is straightforward and army tough. With few characterizations and little emotion, the listener is swept into the action. Miller becomes Bandit Six, patriotic, no-nonsense, and extra rough around the edges. M.B.K.
