On the eve of D-Day, a British secret agent with unique powers goes behind Nazi lines.
Michael Gallatin is a British spy with a peculiar talent: the ability to transform himself into a wolf. Although his work in North Africa helped the Allies win the continent in the early days of World War II, he quit the service when a German spy shot his lover in her bed. Now, three years later, the army asks him to end his retirement and parachute into occupied Paris. A mysterious German plan called the Iron Fist threatens the D-Day invasion, and the Nazi in charge is the spy who betrayed Michael’s lover. The werewolf goes to France for king and country, hoping for a chance at bloody vengeance.
"Simon Prebble's elegant narration adds dignity to a potentially tawdry premise: a British spy in Nazi-occupied Europe during WWII who is secretly a werewolf. As it turns out, McCammon's storyline is surprisingly plausible, and Prebble persuasively voices the spy's tortured introspection about his identity as well as the horrors of the Nazi regime…. Prebble articulates a wide range of characters--from a beautiful French Resistance warrior to a sneering Nazi officer--with just enough color to distinguish them. Also notable are Prebble's voices for the spy's fellow werewolves and his perfect pacing as the spy is almost cornered." (AudioFile)

A British spy with a secret...
This is my favourite novel of all time, I first read it around 20 years ago, and even now it keeps me gripped to every page. However, the narrator doesn't hold the suspense very well and his characterisation of each character never changes, even from male to female or accents from different countries, which I found a huge let down
Michael Gallatin...A British spy with a secret
This novel is crying out to be made into a Hollywood movie, with the strength of the lead character this could be a huge success...
