Now reissued with a brand-new introduction by Peter James, Dead Letter Drop is Peter James' first ever novel, originally published in 1981. Max Flynn, undercover agent, has the unenviable job of spying on his own side. When to kill, who to kill, whether to kill are all questions which have to be answered at great speed if he wants to stay alive.
But why does an innocuous airline ticket No. 14B matter so much? Who has gone to the trouble of committing suicide? And could Flynn's beautiful companion be a spy? The hazy, murky world of counter espionage leaves no room for errors of judgement and Flynn knows he's finished if he makes one false move.
great book- lots of twists and turns. Once u started listening to it I couldn't stop
struggled to finish this one much prefer Roy grace but as paid for had to see it to the end
Not the standard we've come to expect from the wonderful Peter James. Having said that this book is thirty years old.
Would you try another book written by Peter James or narrated by Christopher Webster?
Bought this expecting it to be the new Roy Grace. In fact it is Peter James earlier effort to write a spy story. Disappointing.
If you’ve listened to books by Peter James before, how does this one compare?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
