In the dark world of political assassinations, 17F has become code for ruthless efficiency. He stopped Admiral Darlan and General Bock from forging a dangerous alliance in Operation Armada.
Now he must do the unthinkable: save the life of Adolph Hitler to ensure an Allied victory. A stunning young German woman holds the key to solving the enigma of Parsifal, but she may be a double-agent working for the psychopathic diamond billionaire Wolfgang Krupp.
17F must resist her seductive allure, or risk the worst-case scenario: a Nazi victory.

I did not read the print version but I loved this audiobook because of the fantastic story, the powerfully descriptive writing and complex charachters. I was totally engrossed! It was hard to put aside.I felt that the descriptions and final scenes in Africa were some of the most gut wrenching and horrifying scenes I have ever heard. I also loved the emotional developement of Ian Fleming.None of the charchters were superficial or stereotypical. There were little surprises in each charachter along the way. Each one flawed and fascinating.
I would say that without Wayne Farrell's narration this story would not have been nearly as engrossing. His charachter work was fabulous and pacing was spot on. Wayne Farrell can read descriptive phrases with a lyric fluency that totally immerses you in the scene even before anyone speaks. He is very gifted and never failed to keep me completely engaged in the action and story. I loved the first book but I believe I loved this one even more!
Ian Flemming..before and after..
Just WOW! This one is pure entertainment!
I would recommend this book to someone who is interested in military of the 30's and 40's.
I liked Ian Fleming the best. Having listened to the first book I was interested to see what his next adventure would be.
I really enjoyed the last scene between Ian and Anne and their plans for the future. Even tho this is fiction, it was nice to see how James Bond could have come to life.
The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Parsifal is book 2 in the series. These fictionalized accounts of Fleming's time as a spy for her majesty are very interesting. You can see hints of what would later become the character James Bond 007.
Mr. Farrell continues to impress me with his narration. I really enjoyed how he made each character and scene real. His narration added to Mr. Stevenson's novel.
Another delightful entry in `The Ian Fleming Files' series. This one works as a breezy entertainment but also has a lot on its mind. Biographical details are peppered throughout the narrative but never get in the way of the plot which moves fast but always remains credible.. Excellent audiobook. The narrator did an excellent job.
