Publisher's Summary

In the fifth year of conflict, the master plan for the invasion of Hitler’s Channel stronghold is the Allies’ greatest secret. National security demands it doesn’t fall into enemy hands. So when Colonel Hugh Kelso is pulled from the sea off German-occupied Jersey in April 1944, a major crisis erupts.

Because Kelso is still alive and knows the exact details of the imminent invasion, to ensure the success of their offensive, the Allies launch a suicidal mission to rescue the Colonel...or silence him forever.

    Story
    "Glad it was a Daily Deal rather than full priced"

    Too many shortcuts & too much suspension of disbelief to maintain what should have been a fantastic novel. But when otherwise intelligent people make too many obviously poor decision and things are too often resolved simply to "tie things up", it lost steam for me.

    Story
    "Worth your time"
    What made the experience of listening to Night of the Fox the most enjoyable?

    It is always worthwhile to spend some time defying the Nazi's a bit. This is a pretty good tale and told well enough to keep the reader entertained.


    What other book might you compare Night of the Fox to and why?

    In my youth I read a number of tales about WWII and especially the Nazi regime. I'm not recalling one that I might compare to this book but I'd say this story holds it's own. I do, for some reason, think of the Guns of Navaronne (sp) which I read in the late 50's and it was as just as intriguing.


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

    I listen to books as my eyes can get awfully tired (age!). The man did a good job that I'd call a very listenable and entertaining effort.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm not sure that I ever get so lost in a work of fiction that I'd define it as "moved".


    Any additional comments?

    The overall effort, story and the performance, was good and I'd not complain about either. I'd be willing to try other efforts that include either the author or the reader.
