This is my second Daniel Silva novel and it's good to read a spy novel written in an adult style by someone who clearly could make a mark as a "serious" novelist should he ever wish to tackle different themes. Clearly, I loved the book but I must call attention to the extraordinary narration by Michael Page whose voice changes for each and every character.
Character development was fantastic. The storyline was realistic and had various levels of depth adding a richness to the book. I'm not usually into wartime books but this was great.
This is a good story. The characters are very well-developed. There are quite a few twists and surprises along the way. The action is nonstop. Thevonly reason for four stars is that The ending is a bit too quickly resolved and anti-climatic. Still a great story worth listening to.
I love WWII stories and this is a good one. it reminds me a lot of Ken Follett's Eye of the Needle but with many twists and turns. The characters are well-developed and the action plenty fast enough to keep you listening. If you are a fan of this genre, I don't think you can go wrong with this one.
Slow to start and very dull. Gets better in the later part of the book. At times it is very hard to understand the involvement of each person and to keep them seperated.. Good information on WWII and alll that went into the invasion..
I have read/listened to many of Daniel Silvas books, and they are all very well written. The narrator on this one however leaves much to be desired. I think with a different reader, say a Scot Brick for example, I would probably rate this 4 or maybe even 5 stars. So if you don't mind much about the narration, then this is an excellent story with a good plot, however if the reader makes a difference, I would suggest another of Mr. Silvas works.
This was my first read of a Daniel Silva novel. The story was riveting and the book flowed from chapter to chapter. Of course, Michael Page makes all the difference as a narrator. His performance was spot on. A great spy novel which will lead me to read more of Mr. Silva's books.
I almost stopped listening! I had to constantly fast forward through the explicit sexual portions which were not relevant to the story at all.
Daniel Silva is a gifted writer and the actual story and plot were well written. Just wish I hadn't had to be on guard the whole book long!
Really enjoyed this book. I have listened to many of the Adrian ? Spy series and was finding them a bit same same but this is great. So many sub plots, twists & turns. You think you have it all sorted then there's another twist
