The D-day invasion in 1944 has inspired both highbrow and high-action thrillers. Silva has crafted an intriguing story which falls somewhere in between. The abridgment plays up the action of the story but hints at more intriguing characterizations. Roger Rees has a challenging job to present numerous parallel plots as a network of German spies is activated in wartime Britain. Rees is very good at keeping the characters distinct enough but, wisely, doesn't fall into the trap of stereotypical German or British accents. Rees picks up on the compelling pace of the story and uses it well. This audiobook may keep you circling the block. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN 97]
