    In the fifth book in the series, Lieutenant Lucinda Pierce encounters a death that at first appears to be suicide. In another city, Special Agent Jake Lovett pays little attention to a man who seems to be a conspiracy nut-until he's found dead. As they pursue their separate investigations, the two cases merge into one bigger crime. Together, they will need to strip away the veneer of false appearances to find the truth buried behind the façade.

    Yes if the narrator is the same

    Anyone in the world would be better

    World War II has finally come home to Britain, but it takes more than nightly air raids to rattle intrepid spy and expert code breaker Maggie Hope. After serving as a secret agent to protect Princess Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, Maggie is now an elite member of the Special Operations Executive–a black ops organization designed to aid the British effort abroad–and her first assignment sends her straight into Nazi-controlled Berlin, the very heart of the German war machine. Relying on her quick wit and keen instincts, Maggie infiltrates the highest level of Berlin society, gathering information to pass on to London headquarters. But the secrets she unveils will expose a darker, more dangerous side of the war–and of her own past.

    Would you consider the audio edition of His Majesty's Hope to be better than the print version?

    Yes. The narrator does not complete sentences as one would expect to have a fullstop at the end of a sentence. She draws out the last word of a sentence and seems to be "breathy". I almost stopped listening because of the monotonous narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She was monotonous and boring.


    Who was the most memorable character of His Majesty's Hope and why?

    Maggie. Heroine


    Any additional comments?

    A narrator should make you believe that you are watching a movie. This narrator made me want to switch off audible and watch a movie

    It's1942, and Dolly dreams of distant lands. As the war rages on, excitement comes in the form of American GIs posted in London. Although Dolly is engaged to Tony, she can't help but fall in love with Joe, a dashing American.

    The narration was so annoying that although I love WWII novels, I had to stop listening in 5min
