Roy Samuelson, who narrated Sheinkin's prize-winning BOMB, delivers his newest nonfiction. Listeners who were enthralled by the first audiobook will again be gripped, this time by his compelling dramatization of the Cold War era. Right away, Samuelson renders an impressive blow-by-blow account of a Russian espionage operation. As transitions back and forth in time provide context for historical situations, each skillful recounting by author and narrator embodies the tension felt during this era. Historical personages, major and minor, become substantial with Samuelson's portraits, and vivid descriptions of events--from the construction of the Berlin Wall to the amassing of nuclear weapons and the frightening standoff at the Bay of Pigs--build with the intensity of a thriller.
