Review
  • The late Trevanian's 1979 thriller, SHIBUMI, was a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Now comes Don Winslow, with a prequel, featuring SHIBUMI's main character, Nicholia Hell. SATORI takes place in 1951, when Hell is released from prison in Japan. He had been jailed for killing his mentor, a Japanese war criminal, in an act of mercy. Hell is recruited to pose as a Frenchman to assassinate an Asian enemy of the free world. Hell is a master of the game Go and has unparalleled skill in the Japanese metaphysical martial arts. Narrator Holter Graham gives all the characters in this prequel special treatment. He emphasizes the mysticism in Winslow's work and brings listeners into the unfamiliar world of discipline and terror without missing a beat. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
  • Winslow spins a sequel adventure yarn very nearly as entertaining as its predecessor, the 1979 thriller Shibumi. Set in the Far East in 1951, it features a 26-year-old version of Shibumi's popular protagonist, mystic and master assassin Nicolai Hel. Holter Graham give the prose a splendidly nuanced narration, using a calm, subtly lilting voice in charting the progress of the "more Asian than Western" hero, beginning with his release from a U.S. prison in Tokyo courtesy of the CIA, which put him there, through dramatic sequences of romance, violence, honor, and betrayal, and ending with a slam-bang confrontation with the villains in the underground tunnels of Vietnam. Along the way, Holter makes his Far Eastern accent more prominent, giving voice to the Asian characters, and switches to a touch of French for the love interest, a beautiful spy named Solange; Russian for several of the secondary villains; and a guttural, ugly American for the book's major protagonist. A Grand Central hardcover. (Mar.) --Staff (Reviewed May 30, 2011) (Publishers Weekly, vol 258, issue 22, p)
