As Soldier Spies opens, it is November 1942. War is raging in Europe. The invasion of North Africa has begun. In Washington, OSS chief William J. Donovan finds himself fighting a rear-guard battle against an unexpected enemy: the rival intelligence chiefs back home. In Morocco, Second Lieutenant Eric Fulmar waits in the desert for a car containing two top-level defectors - or will it be full of SS men instead? In England, Major Richard Canidy gets the mission of his life: to penetrate into the heart of Germany and bring out the man with the secret of the jet engine, before the Germans grab hold of him first. The only hope? An experimental pilotless flying bomb. Or at least that's what a lieutenant named Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., thinks.
Everywhere adventure crackles, fueled by the narrative realism, rich characters, and that special flair for the military heart and mind that have always made Griffin's novels so popular. The Soldier Spies is further proof that "Griffin rates among the best storytellers in any genre." (Phoenix Gazette)

"Griffin's plot stays hot and moves at quicksilver speed." (Kirkus Reviews)
Have someone else narrate, Scott Brick is terrible with words and places that are not native english.
NOTHING! He is terrible with non-english words and places, mispronounces words and makes it hard to listen!
If the series was a movie yes.
I have read everything Griffin has published, now I have started to listen. What an amazing journey. Its like seeing an old friend and rehashing tales of the past. I loved the story when I first read the book but listening adds so much more. Scott Brick is one of the best.
I really enjoyed the characters. I like how their interaction with each other. You could just imagine being there
Not as much as others but was interesting to see where the storyline was going.
Many performances but I didn't feel he was as good with this one.
I would loved to do that but the way I listen it's broken up over time.
With all the Griffen books he just keeps you going
A good continuing building of characters that gets you more into the book. It made the car drive fly by.
This book is another good book that takes place in war and the past. I can not say that I like his other series that take place more present day or police type books
