    In 1939, as the armies of Europe mobilized for war, the British secret services undertook operations to impede the exportation of Roumanian oil to Germany. They failed. Then, in the autumn of 1940, they tried again.... So begins Blood of Victory, a novel rich with suspense, historical insight, and the powerful narrative immediacy we have come to expect from best-selling author Alan Furst.

    Any additional comments?

    I love Alan Furst's books, and have read many. First try of an audio version. My view is that his books do not make the transition to audio very well. Nothing wrong with the narrator as such, just that audio narration of this book moves too slowly to keep my attention, thus constantly going back to repeat previous content that I spaced out on.

    For me, this is true of many audio books, and find that I prefer non-fiction for audio. The exception was Len Carriou doing Harry Bosch, and a few others that had tight fast moving plots and were read with a minimum of the narrator's take on character accent and voice.
