Publisher's Summary

Miranda Brand is visiting Germany for what is supposed to be a month's vacation. But from the moment that Brigadier Brindley relates the story about a fortune in lost diamonds - a story in which Miranda herself figures in an unusual way - the vacation atmosphere becomes transformed into something more ominous. And when murder strikes on the night train to Berlin, Miranda finds herself unwillingly involved in a complex chain of events that will soon throw her own life into peril. Set against a background of war-scarred Berlin in the early 1950s, Death in Berlin is a consummate mystery from one of the finest storytellers of our time.

Poor narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

No- the narration spoiled it for me.


How could the performance have been better?

I do not understand why it was felt necessary to have an American narrating when the characters were, in the main, British. Her pronounciation was poor and her attempts at a British accent ludicrous. I persevered until the end of the book but will not buy another audio book of M M Kaye's novels, I will just stick to the written word in future- which I know I will enjoy!
