Publisher's Summary

World War II comes to Farleigh Place, the ancestral home of Lord Westerham and his five daughters, when a soldier with a failed parachute falls to his death on the estate. After his uniform and possessions raise suspicions, MI5 operative and family friend Ben Cresswell is covertly tasked with determining if the man is a German spy. The assignment also offers Ben the chance to be near Lord Westerham's middle daughter, Pamela, whom he furtively loves. But Pamela has her own secret: she has taken a job at Bletchley Park, the British code-breaking facility.
As Ben follows a trail of spies and traitors, which may include another member of Pamela's family, he discovers that some within the realm have an appalling, history-altering agenda. Can he, with Pamela's help, stop them before England falls?
Inspired by the events and people of World War II, writer Rhys Bowen crafts a sweeping and riveting saga of class, family, love, and betrayal.

Narration not good

I am sorry to say that although I would have enjoyed the story I have been unable to listen to the narrator's voice. I tried speeding it up a bit but still no good....I shall have to return this book

Story ok, narration needs work

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, it takes too long to set the story. Then it plods along.

Would you be willing to try another book from Rhys Bowen? Why or why not?

Yes, but not with this narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Inflection was all over the place. Often placed emphasis on the wrong word(s).

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Probably not.

Any additional comments?

The narrator has a good voice but needs training on pacing and inflection.
