5.0 out of 5 stars A READING IMBUED WITH SUSPENSE, DANGER, AND DARK MACHINATIONS, July 25, 2005
This review is from: Robert Ludlum's The Moscow Vector: A Covert-One Novel (Audio CD)
Author Philip Larkin has done a commendable job of continuing Robert Ludlum's acclaimed Covert-One series. Ludlum, who died in 2001, was read by millions throughout the world and known for his heart-stopping suspense novels. While Larkin has come up with new ideas, amazing technological spins, he hasn't lost the original tone of Ludlum's work (see The Lazarus Vendetta).

This time out the weapon is unbelievable - a poison that singles out victims by their DNA. Not only that but it can't be detected nor can it be cured. It's Lt. Col. Jon Smith's task to deal with this. Remember he's an Army research doctor and a secret agent for Covert-One. While at a conference in Prague he's contacted by a colleague, Dr. Valentin Petrenko, who's disturbed by sudden, unexplainable deaths in Moscow. Petrenko is further concerned by the fact that the Russian government is covering up the deaths.

When Smith and Petrenko do meet concerning this matter, Petrenko is murdered and all of his information is gone. Russia is now led by an extremely ambitious president who seems bent on control of territories and people. With little to go on and the body count rising, including an attempt on the life of the President of the United States, Smith must stop the carnage.

Voice performer Erik Bergmann gives an outstanding rendition of the story on both the Abridged and Unabridged Editions. His reading is imbued with sustained suspense, danger and dark machinations. An excellent listen.
