Great fare for fans of the fast pace of undercover wartime operations from authors such as Helen MacInnis, Eric Ambler or Hammond Innis. Sam Llewellyn has recreated the British secret service's heroes from the siege of Navarone and given them a new mission in the Pyrenees. Steven Pacey conveys every dicey maneuver and breath-holding moment with the keenest sense of timing and driving action. Pacey colors the small band of commandos, villagers and patriots with sure characterizations, not only making it easy to follow dialogue but making listeners care about each man. For thriller fans who long for a little less mayhem and more heroic characters, select this for sure attention-grabbing listening for the next trip--great attraction for teens, too.
