    "A great series"

    Each of the three books in this series is a gripping thriller in its own right but they are even better if read in sequence. This is the third and the premise of the main protagonist being a British/American journalist living in Berlin works well to give us a cynical insight into how it must have been to live under the Nazi regime and with a reminder that there were Germans opposed to the state. Evocative of a desperate time and place, the tension, excitement and suspense build as the situation for John Russell deteriorates. This third book lives up to the high standards of the first two.

    "A fine set of stories"

    When looking for a new audio book, I sometimes look at other books read by my favourite narrators and so it was I came up with the David Downing "Station" set read by Simon Prebble. All three books in the series have been thoroughly enjoyable, the only thing that lets down Stettin Station being the numerous edits that have taken place and have been recorded with completely different audio settings, absolutely no bass whatsoever. So when one of these occurs, albeit short in length, Simon sounds like he's got his head in a toilet. There are so many of them too and it really spoils what would have been and excellent final book in the series. Shame.

    "Best of the three"

    Excellent third book and the best of the three. They should be read in sequence to appreciate the development of the story. Awaiting the fourth, Potsdam Station.

    "Superb Thriller"

    A tense thriller that captures the fear and atmosphere of Hitlers Germany.I found myself marvelling at how the author can write and instill in the listener the horror that is happening in Germany
    The book is superbly narrated by Simon Prebble.
    Buy it after listening to the previous two books you will not be disappointed

    "Another good listen in the John Russell series"
    If you could sum up Stettin Station in three words, what would they be?

    Atmospheric, absorbing, interesting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stettin Station?

    John and Effie waiting in Stettin to escape the Gestapo.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    It's not really an 'enjoyable' book as it's about Nazi Berlin at the time the US enters the war.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Tense thriller set in wartime Berlin


    Any additional comments?

    Worth reading the first two books in the series first
