Mystery & Suspense • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Fact and fiction are interwoven in this historical novel about Wernher von Braun and his team of rocket scientists, who in this thriller are on the verge of defection to the U.S. David Rintoul, who narrates with a plummy English accent and a detached air, presents characters on both sides of WWII with equanimity. The story traces the impact of Hitler's decision to unleash powerful V2 rockets on London and Antwerp. It is told from the perspectives of Dr. Rudi Graf, a colleague of von Braun, and Kay Caton-Walsh, a WAAF officer. Graf is the reluctant scientist who must obey his commanders' orders, and Kay is tasked with tracking the rockets' arcs. Though Kay and Graf play key roles, the sinister power of the V2 is front and center. L.W.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2020]
