It's immediately clear why author Rankin is a multiple mystery award winner--the clean, tight writing here features crisp character development and a relentless plot. Terrorists, assassins, Scotland Yard, and MI5 take part in this multilayered story involving desire, ambition, and murder. Peter Capaldi breathes even more life into the novel, painting clear, intricate sound pictures of each character. Retired spymaster Dominic Elder is rendered as a restrained, flinty James Mason. Brash Cockney cops; nerdy, bland bureaucrats; and a dragon lady spy are all vividly portrayed, along with the title character--code name "Witch"--a twisted mercenary with style to burn. This is a fantastic listen whose plot falters only in its final reel--yet the acting never flags. D.J.B.
