Audiobook Review: Prometheus Man by Scott Reardon

He rolled over in the bed. “Who is this?” Then he remembered he was on a cell phone and the line wasn’t secure. “Wait. Say again.” “You need to come here. Right now.” His feet were already on the floor the moment he recognized the voice. There were questions on the tip of his tongue, but the circumstances answered them before he could speak. Did something happen at the lab? —Of course something happened at the lab. Are the police there? —He wouldn’t tell you if they were. “Fifty minutes,” he said and hung up. He was actually only twenty minutes away, but Weaver—the voice on the phone—didn’t know just how frequently he switched hotels. Within…
