    "A revealing look into the intrigue and extraordinary courage of our intelligence gatherers of World War II. A rare combination of suspense thriller and true heroism by a great American writer." (Clive Cussler, New York Times best-selling author)

    Nicholas Grimaldi says: "Great book..."
    "Extremely Poor Narrator"
    Overall

    I purchased this ebook based on the recommendation of a friend, who, knowing my love of history, and the OSS in particular because my father spent his war life working in the OSS during WWII, thought I would enjoy this book. I DID NOT ENJOY THIS BOOK!.
    And the whole reason is because of the narrator, Mr. Christopher Lane.

    PROS: Book
    CONS: Narrator

    SUMMARY: Mr. Lane needs to either go to a school to learn how to do accents and dialects before spewing forth verbal garbage such as in this book that ruins the whole ebook presentation.
    I DID enjoy the historical information presented in the book itself, but this was all ruined because Mr. Lane thinks that he has the ability to mimic different language accents and dialects, which he CANNOT do at all because every foreign language he attempts sounds the same.
    If I could just award separate ratings for the book, and for the ebook voicing performance or presentation of the book, I would rate the book at 4.5, and the ebook voicing at a negative 5.
    Therefore, in summary I have to give this book a 1 since that is the lowest rating available.

    Jean Paget is just twenty years old and working in Malaya when the Japanese invasion begins. When she is captured she joins a group of other European women and children whom the Japanese force to march for miles through the jungle. While on the march, the group run into some Australian prisoners, one of whom, Joe Harman, helps them steal some food, and is horrifically punished by the Japanese as a result.
