Black Cross | [Greg Iles]

Black Cross

It is January 1944 - and as Allied troops prepare for D day, Nazi scientists develop a toxic nerve gas that will repel and wipe out any invasion force. To salvage the planned assault, two vastly different but equally determined men are sent to infiltrate the secret concentration camp where the poison gas is being perfected on human subjects. Their only objective: destroy all traces of the gas and the men who created it - no matter how many lives may be lost...including their own.

    "Exciting"

    I usually listen to books while I'm doing other things such as cleaning house or running errands. So at times I can be distracted and miss a portion of a book. This was a book that held my attention and was so exciting. Very good and well worth credits or money spent. I am now a big fan of Greg Iles and I'm going to look for other books.

    "Top 3 of all time"

    I have listened to over 125 unabridged books, and this is in the top 3, if not THE best. The narration is excellent, especially with the German accents. The characters and vivid, the action intense, and the book has good pace.

    "A great read!"

    I am not usually a fan of WWII books but my husband loved this one and badgered me into reading it. The book grabbed me at the very beginning and didn't let go until the last words! Dick Hill as always did a great job reading. I look forward to more from Greg Iles.

    "Black Cross holds you"

    Black Cross by Greg Iles was an excellent book regarding the struggles and deaths of chemical victims by Germany's medical doctors in the surround of World War II. It was very well written and a good read.

    "Very Engaging"

    This is a book that both genders can and will appreciate hearing. Sometimes is was very difficult to hear what horrible abuses were done to the Jews, Christians and many other refugees in the concentration camps and we will never now how many hero's there was who helped them. It's a very powerful and well written and narrated book.

    "Good book"

    I really enjoyed this book. I had to read the beginning a few times, because I couldn't really focus, but once I settled down, I enjoyed the book. Definitely a good vs evil story. Jews vs Germans

    "Great book; narration disappointing"

    As a native of Great Britain, I found it really hard to ignore the absolutely dreadful English and Scots accents employed by the narrator. I'm sure it isn't easy to narrate a book with such a wide range of voices and accent types, but it's really off-putting when the accents are SO bad.

    "Intense"

    This is a very well written story. It is impossible to pick a favorite characters because each of them is so well developed and interesting. The narration is excellent.

    "Why is Iles's The Quiet Game abridged?"

    This is a comment about Greg Iles's The Quiet Game. I'm making it here because Audible doesn't provide a way to comment on a book you haven't bought from them.

    Why is Iles's best book to date, The Quiet Game, severely abridged?
