    On holiday in Mykonos, Charlie wants only sunny days and a brief escape from England's bourgeois dreariness. Then a handsome stranger lures the aspiring actress away from her pals - but his intentions are far from romantic. Joseph is an Israeli intelligence officer, and Charlie has been wooed to flush out the leader of a Palestinian terrorist group responsible for a string of deadly bombings. Still uncertain of her own allegiances, she debuts in the role of a lifetime as a double agent in the "theatre of the real".

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Little Drummer Girl to be better than the print version?

    No, I would never consider an audio edition to be better then a print edition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    In this book, mr le carré switches from the cold war to the middle east and I love his description of this really complicated political situation.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Michael Jayston is great as always, I love his voice.

    Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th-century England.

    "not good sound, Is it a computer reading?"
