Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Star of the North by D. B. John, read by Linda Park, with an author's note read by the author.

North Korea and the United States are on the brink of war.

A young American woman disappears without trace from a South Korean island.

The CIA recruits her twin sister to uncover the truth.

Now she must go undercover in the world’s most deadly state.

Only by infiltrating the dark heart of the terrifying regime will she be able to save her sister... and herself.

Star of the North is the most explosive thriller of the year - you won't be able to pause it.

Gripping story, narration not so much.

Gripping story from start to finish. Alas the narrator's inflections became irritating. Buy the book.
