Mix James Bond-like characters, witty dialogue, a lot of action, historical fiction, and light humor, and you get this riveting listen. It features two time lines--WWII and the present day--connected by its characters' lineage. The story comes alive, thanks to Simon Vance's energetic narration. As WWII heats up, Chinese ambassador Tiger Tang strikes up a friendship with President Roosevelt. In the present day, Alex Hawke is in the Bahamas on a mission to save the Queen's grandson. Vance deftly alternates between storylines, portraying multiple characters from England, China, and the U.S. Individual voices, including those of Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, are done well, and Vance's emotionally charged tones help listeners keep the plot straight.
