Mystery & Suspense • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Fans of McCarry’s CIA operative, Paul Christopher, are here rewarded for their decades of loyalty. This is almost like getting two books for the price of one. In what amounts to a prequel in the Christopher series, the first half of the book takes listeners back to pre-WWII Germany, where Christopher, at age 16, and his family are tormented by a sadistic SS major. In the second part of the book, which takes place 20 years later, listeners find out what happens when Christopher spies the former Nazi in Communist East Berlin. Stefan Rudnicki, a regular narrator of McCarry novels, is clearly in his medium. He handles the many foreign accents superbly and is at his best as the ranting SS butcher.
