Job Description

Looking for an authoritative but natural voice similar to Scott Brick (who narrates Clive Cussler and Steve Berry's books) to read the first of an action/adventure novel series with a variety of characters.

Specified Word count is 107,000

If you have previous audiobook credits, please include them with your proposal (including links).

BRAINRUSH is a debut thriller that's received outstanding reviews from Publisher's Weekly. Book One of the series will be released in print and ebook form in September 2011. Book Two will be released in December.

This RFQ is for Book One only, but the contract will include a provision for follow-on books in the series, so include an approximate cost for subsequent books assuming the same length. Budget is yet to be determined, so disregard the range set forth in the field above.

Need a male voice for this fast-moving action/adventure. Dialogue is English. Character accents include Amercian, Italian, Hispanic and Arabic, male and female. Here's a short synposis:

Diagnosed with only months to live, former combat pilot Jake Bronson was prepared to die—he just didn't want to do it today, trapped in an MRI during an earthquake. Instead of dying, however, the accident increases Jake's brainpower ten-fold, giving him extraordinary mental abilities. Jake's new powers go viral on YouTube, attracting the attention of a terrorist group working to perfect cerebral implants with the goal of enhancing the abilities of its Jihadist spies. Convinced that an exam of Jake's brain will catapult their research, they kidnap him.

Held captive in an ancient palace in Venice, Italy, Jake bonds with psychologist Francesca and two kidnapped autistic-savant children—the next subjects in the terrorists' deadly experiments. Jake vows to save them, even if it means trading his life for theirs. Meanwhile, Jake's friends have tracked him to Venice, but their attempt to free him in a guns-blazing raid backfires when the terrorist leader uses Francesca and one of the children as hostages, fleeing with them to his Afghan mountain stronghold. Jake and his friends gather a special ops team for a daring rescue mission, where Jake discovers that his newfound talents carry a hidden price that mankind may be unable to pay.

Chapters 1 and 5 are attached, the first from the POV of the protagonist and the latter from that of the antagonist.

The final audiobook will be available for sale online.
