From the creator of popular radio detective Paul Temple comes this gripping adventure featuring undercover agent Tim Frazer, read by Anthony Head.The World of Tim Frazer, shown under the banner Francis Durbridge Presents...., was the longest-running BBC serial of the early Sixties, and one of the most successful. The popularity of the TV programmes inspired Francis Durbridge to write several novels featuring the easygoing engineer-turned-spy Tim Frazer.
In this one, read by Buffy and Little Britain star Anthony Head, Frazer becomes involved in another complex case full of twists and turns.St Bride’s guest house, just outside the town of Melinfforest, was a restful place with glorious views of the Welsh countryside. Tim Frazer, however, had no time for fishing and long country walks. He had been sent there to find out why Miss Thackery, a British intelligence agent, had been brutally murdered and her body dumped in a nearby wood. There was also the matter of a missing German scientist, Kurt Lander, who had been working for the British Government before mysteriously disappearing. Can Tim Frazer find out what links the two agents – before it’s too late?

"The Life of Tim Frazer" is one of my favorite books. This is a shorter sequel.
This isn't an intellectual John LeCarre, nor a screenplay like Clive Cussler. It's fun, it's English and delightfully old fashioned.
