Narrator Matt Addis taps into his agility with accents to perform the many English, Irish, and American characters in this well-plotted thriller. The story opens with an explosion in a London tube station, where listeners are introduced to Irish-born Constantine (Con) Lindow, a research scientist who is arrested for the bombing. To prove his innocence, he agrees to work with Commander Kenneth Foyle, head of the Metropolitan Police's Anti-terrorist Unit. Chapters alternate between scenes of Foyle navigating internal politics and Lindow tracking down leads related to the true bomber. Addis uses pitch, pace, and tone to create differentiated male and female personalities. In one segment, Addis flawlessly delivers Con's speech as it drifts from his Americanized accent to an Irish lilt. The overall result is a thoroughly engaging listen.
