Army Intelligence reservist Kat Caldwell is teaching Arabic at a military college in Virginia when the order comes: retired spy chief Dick Morrow needs to find a CIA informant who has slipped away from his handler in Spain and may be heading to Morocco. Jamal was a prisoner whom Kat interrogated when she worked at Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan. Having gained his trust, she is now expected to discover his whereabouts on a treacherous trail that leads from Madrid’s red-light district to the slums of Casablanca.

Caroline Lee does her best to breathe authenticity into a novel about a young female interrogator, but the story never quite coalesces. Katherine (Kat) Caldwell, an Arabic specialist, is sent to find out what she can about terrorist activities from a 15-year-old Moroccan boy, the prince of the title. Lee does well with the pacing and mechanics of the spy world, keeping things moving briskly, but her performance is slowed by Carr's heavy-handed, self-conscious descriptions of both people and places. Lee is an admirable guide as the story moves from Morocco to Madrid and a whirlwind of other locations, and she manages to keep the myriad secondary characters straight enough for listeners to follow. However, despite Lee's convincing portrayals, the story promises more than it delivers. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
