Listeners who relish a taut courtroom drama will appreciate hearing narrator Geoffrey Pounsett present the fictional terrorism trial of Dr. Michael MacDougall, a dedicated surgeon. After traumatic events in the Congo, he feels driven to commit an act of political insurrection: He releases a toxic chemical into the Seattle water supply. Pounsett captures the traits of a man who is caring, youthful, idealistic--and dangerously naïve. Pounsett's apt depictions of the defendant's wife and the EPA director display his skill in portraying women. The weary but steady and sagacious voice of the defense attorney is suitably reassuring. Listeners are asked to consider under what circumstances terrorism is justifiable. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
