    On the vacation of a lifetime in Egypt, an elderly French couple are brutally murdered. Days later, a meticulously planned kidnapping takes place on the streets of Paris. Amelia Levene, the first female Chief of MI6, has disappeared without a trace, six weeks before she is due to take over as the most influential spy in Europe. It is the gravest crisis MI6 has faced in more than a decade. Desperate not only to find her, but to keep her disappearance a secret, Britain’s top intelligence agents turn to one of their own: disgraced MI6 officer Thomas Kell.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed this book because the narrator was excellent (none of us chronic Audible devotees think the narrator is of marginal importance, of course). But the story got off to a VERY slow start. Once it got rolling, it was worth the wait, but persistence is required.


    What does Jot Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has a wonderful facility with the differentiation of accents and gender.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Depending on the casting, the book would make a good movie.
