Publisher's Summary

September 1942. Karl Deichman knows that if he carries out orders to lead a precision bomb attack on the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth, he will probably kill his English cousin - with whom, long ago, he swore friendship until death. But a pilot from the German Luftwaffe has no choice - the attack must proceed.

After the war, and consumed by guilt, Karl returns to London on a quest to find out the fate of his cousin and uncover the secret of the Dartmouth conspiracy. But tension mounts as he is unwittingly drawn into a lethal trap. It isn't until Karl's final visit to Dartmouth in 2005 that the final jigsaw piece is slotted into place.

Top notch

Solid entertainment and somewhat believeable. The action in the air is particularly satisfying. (What's a "page turner" in the audible lexicon?) A truly excellent narration. I hope M.T. Barnes pops up in future audible books, he's that good!

very good listen

Very good book the best story I have heard in a long time. Nice twists and turns until the very end. Excellent narrator even if he missed a few of the accents.
