Scott Brick narrates this sixth episode in the Covert One series, involving pirates, immigrants turned into slaves, and a bizarre gold bullion scheme. Brick's depictions of Juan Cabrillo and his shipboard crew are diverse and easy to follow. His volume and pitch match the ever increasing tension as Cabrillo, hired by foreign interests to learn why top Russian specialists are dying, passes the information to the U.S. instead. Using broken accents, he skillfully portrays immigrants as they "ride the snake" to America, but meet death or slavery instead. When pirates board the OREGON, Brick dramatizes the action in a tense staccato that soon changes to resolute victory. G.D.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
