Inside an old German U-Boat rusting on the bottom of the Baltic are millions in gold bars, stolen art, and a secret that could tear NATO apart. In this military political action thriller, the only one who knows the truth is Mike Randall, a battle-scarred American who survived four months in the frozen Hell of northern Germany at the end of the war. When he does speak up, he puts a target on his own forehead, one which the Russians, the West Germans, the U-boat's former owners, the Israeli Mossad, and even his own government quickly take aim at. In this mystery and suspense thriller, some want the gold, some want Randall dead, and some want proof that there is a high-ranking spy inside NATO itself. Randall's wants are much simpler in this sea adventure. Caught between the Kremlin, spies, killers, and a new, deadly, 4th Reich, he wants his revenge and to satisfy some old debts with a steel-jacketed bullet.
A fast-moving action adventure, Amongst My Enemies is historical fiction and a Cold War spy thriller from the author of The Undertaker, Thursday at Noon, and Winner Lose All.

I would have give this book five stars except some of the narration just about drive me up a wall. The voice of Leslie was awful and there were times the portrayal of the Swedish accent just about drove me up the wall. Considering the amount of effort and I am sure production bucks to include background music and sounds, maybe the producers could have spent a little more for an additional narrator. Now, when the narrator talked from the stance of a third person, I enjoyed the narration.
Otherwise, this story was jam packed with action and kept me at the edge of my seat. As I write this, I still have 2 1/2 hours left to the book so I don't know how it ends although I think I have a good idea what will happen.
Well worth the credit even though I found Leslie totally irritating.
This recording is full of sound effects and music that is so out of place that I couldn't continue to listen. If the same book was done without all the fluff, it may have been worth it. Right now, it's awful!
I love audio books because the narrator is able to speak with the accents of the various characters and it makes them more alive than a print version. Because much of this story took place outside of the U. S., the accents were even more entertaining.
There was no one moment. I enjoyed the story as a whole.
Once again, I enjoyed the various accents he used for the characters.
Imaginative and fast-paced plot will entertain throughout
Mr. Brown, please write another book. I have read all five and I want more!
I just finished the audiobook. The story line kept my interest from the beginning. The narrator was one of the best I've heard, and I listen to a lot of audiobooks. His ability to give each of the characters a distinctive voice made it a great listen, and the music and sound effects made it seem like I was listening to a radio show. What more can I say...interesting story line and outstanding narrator and sound effects. I don't want to give away the plot twists and turns, but they're there. Prepare to be entertained.
It kept me on the edge of my chair, especially the last hour or so.
No, but I'd like to. He did a great job on this book.
I suppose I'm biased, because the author is my father, but I really liked this book. It's a classic World War II thriller, but very well done. Just when you settle in, expecting the plot to go in one direction, it changes course to a different, more interesting direction. Several characters are well-developed, and each one is given a satisfying ending. You should totally buy this book for you and all of your friends!
