    For the first time ever, legendary editor Otto Penzler has handpicked some of the most respected and best-selling thriller writers working today for a riveting collection of spy fiction. From first to last, this stellar collection signals mission accomplished.

    "Not as good as I'd hoped"
    Overall

    The authors all seemed to go to the "dark side" for this one. Most of them write books where the characters overcome significant odds to come out on top. Almost all of these short stories seemed to have the good guys lose. Perhaps, they were all trying to be more realistic. Unfortunately, I read these types of novels for enjoyment and escapism. I see enough "reality" in daily life.

  • Mr. Churchill's Secretary: A Maggie Hope Novel, Book 1

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 48 mins)

    Story
    (643)

    London, 1940: Winston Churchill has just been sworn in, war rages across the Channel, and the threat of a Blitz looms larger by the day. But none of this deters Maggie Hope. She graduated at the top of her college class and possesses all the skills of the finest minds in British intelligence, but her gender qualifies her only to be the newest typist at No. 10 Downing Street. Her indefatigable spirit and gifts for codebreaking, though, rival those of even the highest men in government, and Maggie finds that working for the prime minister affords her a level of clearance she could never have imagined....

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Cannot say.


    What was most disappointing about Susan Elia MacNeal’s story?

    I could not understand the narrator.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Wanda McCaddon?

    Almost anyone.


    Any additional comments?

    The problem was that the narrator was attempting to create several voices, all with a British accent. They became garbled and very difficult to understand. I gave up after abour 50 minutes. Also, the story had not begun to form much of a plot as of that time.
