Publisher's Summary

Eddie Chapman was a womaniser, blackmailer and safecracker. He was also a great hero - the most remarkable double agent of the Second World War. Chapman became the only British national ever to be awarded an Iron Cross for his work for the Reich. He was also the only German spy ever to be parachuted into Britain twice. But it was all an illusion: Eddie fooled the Germans in the same way he conned his victims in civilian life. He was working for the British all along. Until now, the full story of Eddie Chapman's extraordinary exploits has never been told, thwarted by the Official Secrets Act. Now at last all the evidence has been released, including Eddie's MI5 files, and a complete account of what he achieved is told in this enthralling book.

It’s, barely, alright.

Ah, it’s the usual droning on of a book with too many pages and not enough of anything interesting.

Monotonous narrator

Would you try another book written by Nicholas Booth or narrated by Roger Davis?

If narrated by Roger Davis, certainly not.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Eddie Chapman

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Monotonous, boring narrator who must be used to reading fairy-tales to children.

Was Zigzag worth the listening time?

The story... yes. With this narrator... no.

Phenominal

This book was like listening to a spy thriller. You can't help but feel for Eddie Chapman, he may have started on the wrong side of the tracks but he went on to play an imperative part in the second world war. i will be looking up his biography to read next. I know your not here to read it but we'll don and thank you.
