    There are books of the same chemical composition as dynamite. The only difference is that a piece of dynamite explodes once, whereas a book explodes a thousand times. ― Yevgeny Zamyatin

    Story
    "Love, deceit, a false marriage and a ruined life"

    I've never been into spy dramas, but this engrossed my attention. For an agent, it is his mission to seduce a young lady in order to obtain information, for the lady the affair ends in a disaster and shattered dreams.
    The romeo spy drama is titled Blue Wonder, which is the name of the bridge crossing the Elbe. In German the idiom ein blaues Wunder erleben means to experience a nasty surprise, and that, ironically, can account for what the female protagonist felt when she learned the truth.
    Excellent performance. Intriguing and upbeat story. Well done.

    "Gripping drama"

    This is a fantastic drama and I would highly recommend a listen. I knew nothing about 'Romeo spies' before listening to this audiobook so was really interested in this aspect of it. It's an amazing, gripping drama, beautifully acted by Clare Corbett and Jamie Glover, who are both radio drama regulars.
