"This is a book of great renown....Its beautifully sustained atmosphere...adds poetry, and...real mystery." (Ian Fleming)
I listen to audiobooks mainly while commuting 90 minutes a day and when walking. Sometimes when knitting.
Just finished Part One and am really enjoying listening to this novel set just prior to World War I on the North Sea coast of Germany. It involves two young Englishmen sailing the coast in a small boat looking for German spies. The narrator is excellent and if you like sailing, intrigue and dry British humor, I highly recommend it. The writing is much better than your average spy story and the descriptions of the sea and the boat and the coast are quite poetic. I wish there was another book available by the same author.
I read the reviews of the other copies of this book that had audio problems in the past. I am grateful that this remake was done. This is a remarkable story for many reasons. It is so well written,suspenseful,colorful characters , interesting topic. I can't believe this is the only book written by this author. I find myself wanting to know more about the author and his background in intelligence.
