A very enjoyable listen.

Set at the end of WWII this is a spy story to keep you fascinated. The characters are well rounded and believable as are their adventures. Not as wildly elaborate as a James Bond story, but very worth the listen. I’m about to move on to the next book. So it must be good!

Gentle style but tense thriller!

What I found very interesting and unusual is that such a tense thriller could have a gentle writing style and a story that was not action-packed. Rather, the details and pace seemed realistic (so not like Kiefer Sutherland's 24). Historically the description of the period and wartime Vienna was incredibly interesting and thought-provoking - as a reader I really felt I understood it and could almost experience it.

Very happy to have listened to this!
