Another great audio from Burke and Patton!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Will Patton is the perfect match for James Lee Burke. No one can do a better job of narrating a Burke novel than Will Patton. Together they are the best!
What did you like best about this story?
The story is a page turner and the characters are a fascinating bunch of both good and bad people. It almost felt like the the ending was going to be terrible for the good guys but things work out.

What made the experience of listening to The Spy Who Came in from the Cold the most enjoyable?
John Le Carre is my favourite author and I have read most of his books including this one and I enjoyed the audio version just as much as the written one.
The narrator was excellent and the story was engrossing right from the beginning.
Highly recommend it specially if you are a fan of Le Carre.
What other book might you compare The Spy Who Came in from the Cold to and why?
Books narrated by Will Payton
Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
not really - I like to stretch out the good books so I enjoy it longer rather than finishing them in one sitting
