Publisher's Summary

An international safecracker steals diamonds destined for the Reich.

A tip comes in to the Gestapo, warning of an impending burglary at the Paris Ritz. The target is the room of a special attaché to the German Ministry of Production, where a safe contains a cache of diamonds intended for use in arms manufacture. When inspectors Jean-Louis St-Cyr and Hermann Kohler arrive, backed up by a Berlin cop, the safe is intact. But when they turn the dial to inspect its contents, it explodes, leaving the policemen shaken but unharmed, and ruining one of the finest suites in the Ritz.

The burglar has already come and gone, leaving the safe rigged with nitroglycerin as a surprise for his pursuers. His codename is Gypsy, and he has deviled the Reich for years. St-Cyr and Kohler will do their best to unmask him, but as they learned long ago, no crime is simple when the victims are servants of the Thousand-Year Reich.

    "Hard to keep track of characters"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    To my friends who love WWII stories set in France, yes.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Aside from the main characters of St. Cyr and Kohler, I could not remember who the other characters were. I often have this problem with Jane's books, even in written form.


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

    His lovely French accent brings a touch of authenticity that enhances the listening pleasure. Plus, his way of speaking helps me to understand how to say words in French!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of Jane's books evoke sadness in me for the two characters trapped in a situation over which they are powerless.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy Jane's books because of the cultural and historical insights into the French people during the Nazi occupation. For example, the detail of the people going to the movies just to see a good meal again was understandable yet heartbreaking.
