    some of it


    Any additional comments?

    this appears to be an early version of a michael gilbert novel retitled The Danger Within, in which he cut out the long tedious escape through italy part at the end and wound up neatly and dramatically with the mass escape and the discovery of the spy. Second version was much better, too bad you didn't record that one.
