    Widely recognized as the master of the historical spy novel, New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst takes listeners back to the early days of World War II for a dramatic novel of intrigue and suspense.

    "Great book, but there are a number of inaccuracies"
    Overall

    This is a very good listen as it provides a good insight into the inner workings of the operation of the Russian state security agency (NKVD) and intriguingly describes events of the the prewar and wartime Europe through the eyes of Soviet, British and American spies. The book does have several inaccuracies. One small example is the author's reference to the NKVD personnel driving Pobeda (or Victory) cars in prewar Moscow. That is not possible as the car was first built in 1946 in honor of Soviet victory over Nazi Germany. I like Russian and WWII history and pay attention to details. Because of some of these inaccuracies I rated the book only 4 stars.

    Twelve miles above the Pacific Ocean, a missile strikes a jumbo passenger jet and leaves the flight crew either crippled or dead. This is the story of how three survivors must achieve the impossible and land the plane. Master storyteller Nelson DeMille and veteran pilot Thomas Block collaborated on Mayday, the most terrifyingly realistic air disaster thriller of all time. Also available abridged.

    Douglas says: "Great adventure! Hard to put down."
    "FANTASTIC"
    Overall

    This is an absolutely fantastic book. I loved every second of the recording. I have now listed to many of the DeMille books and this is one of my favorites. I couldn't not put down the iPod at 2 am in the morning as the story was so gripping that I just wanted to have more and more. The description of every event is very graphic and the decompression scenes are horrifying. Every chapter is absolutely captivating and you'd want to listen to the whole book all at once. Strongly recommend. Especially if you are an aviation enthusiast as I am.
