Another exciting story from the Guy Winter series. It follows on from book four, Winter's Return, and indeed threads from earlier books are pulled together to answer long awaited questions. It's a tangled web of intrigue, murder and espionage. It's quite an intricate story line and I got a sense of how complicated and dangerous the political scene was at the time for those involved in the war effort and espionage business.
You do need to be familiar with the characters and the story lines of previous books. I recommend reading the series in order and in its entirety.
Again the narration is excellent from Melanie Fraser. The accents were very well done and the subtle sound effects were very effective in setting the scenes and making the experience the story more dramatic.
I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy.
In this fifth book in this series Guy Winter is arrested and questioned as if he had something to do with spying .
This series just get more and more interesting and although the subject matter of this story is not my normal I will admit that I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It is well written and the narrator has really done a splendid job of helping to bring it to life. I was thoroughly entertained and am really looking forward to the last in the series.
A free copy of the audiobook was supplied at my request and this is my voluntary and unbiased review of it.

This is the third installment in the Winter series of books, the second full-length audiobook, and my favorite, so far. I can honestly say that at this point, I’ve become very fond of the characters and look forward to learning what awaits them in the rest of the series. With the Blitz underway, I’m concerned for everyone’s safety. This book includes a few close calls; I won’t say more in order to avoid spoilers.
While I’m thoroughly enjoying this series, I do find, at times, that the descriptive portions can become a bit much, and my attention wanders. I then need to go back and rewind and re-listen. Still, it’s a highly engaging tale of life in WWII London, Scotland Yard, and MI5. Unexpected developments constantly caught me by surprise. Make no mistake, this is a dark, noir-like story that continues from book to book through the series, though resolution for each book’s specific events is offered..
The narration is excellent. Ms. Fraser offers a smooth rendition of the story, with distinct voices for each of the characters. She also offers near pitch-perfect emotion as required for each scene. I suspect if it were not for her performance, I might have abandoned this series, but I happilyawait more.
If you’re into 1930-40s war related detective tales, this series might be for you, though I think it’s important to point out that you will likely need to listen to the books in order so that you come to understand the characters and their histories.
I received this book as a gift from the narrator. Her generosity did not influence my opinion of this book, or the comments I made in my review.
