Publisher's Summary

Summer 1941. As America edges closer to joining the struggle against Hitler, reluctant operative Ryan Lemmon returns to Nazi Europe. Although his undercover assignment targets the Reich's covert operations in Paris, the rescue of close friends from a fascist internment camp takes top priority. Ryan finds in occupied France a cauldron of deception and unbridled cruelty. Torn by German exploitation and French collaboration, the country now teems with unforeseen dangers: a dying British intelligence agent whose help may prove deadly. A beautiful partisan whose cold heart could make or break his mission. A former lover trapped between Nazi operatives and the violent Parisian underworld. And deep in the shadows, a ruthless enemy playing a treacherous game of cunning and subterfuge. Lethal confrontation looms in this powerful sequel to the award-winning thriller Corridor of Darkness, A Novel of Nazi Germany, described by Kirkus Reviews as "...an intriguing early WWII spy yarn set in a well-researched, authentic Germany."

2nd in a series, will not buy part three

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I liked the narrator so much in the first book ("Corridor of Darkness"), that I actually bought this second in the series (there are three total), by Patrick O'Bryon. Tim Campbell's pronunciations, enunciation and character voices were all remarkable. As far as the story goes, it was just part two of so-so reading/listening. While entertaining, it pales in comparison to the WWII stories written by Philip Kerr. I will not buy book three or any other by Mr. O'Bryon. There are much better writers out there.
