Hitler's Third Reich is rearming and planning for war. Churchill wants to stop him, but only Becker's report can reverse the British mood of appeasement. Cornered by the Gestapo, desperate to save his German collaborator, Maria, Becker has mere days to ward off double disaster....

There is no real story. Just one improbable escape from Nazi capture after another. The characters are wooden. I had just finished Leaving Berlin which I really liked and thought The Berlin Deception might have been as good.
If you like books in this genre by Follett, Silva, Deighton, or Greg Iles. Narrator is very good.
Try also SS-GB, XPD, The Unlikely Spy, Black Cross, Eye of the Needle, The Key to Rebecca etc.... I loved all those and find this to be really entertaining. Easier than Kerr but you might like it if you like Bernie. A bit old fashioned like Helen MacInnes.
History, historical fiction and mysteries are my faves, but a fan of all genres.
The last quarter of the book, the improbable went to beyond believable. Love this genre, the ending could have been so much more plausible, wrecked it for me unfortunatley.
