by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

Mystery & Suspense • 21 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Patrick Lawlor delivers on every level in this fictionalized account of Ernest Hemingway’s 1940 amateur spy ring, which was sanctioned by the U.S. and operated from his Cuban ranch. Lawlor captures a broad cast of characters such as fishermen, prostitutes, priests, orphans, and millionaires, providing an array distinctive voices and accents throughout. His depiction of FBI agent Joe Lucas, sent by FBI director Hoover to win the great writer’s trust, recounts the initial stages of their deadly game of wartime espionage. Then a crucial piece of information is found, and the chase begins. While the book’s portrayals of Hemingway’s salty conversations leave the impression that the great writer’s speech was pretty vulgar, the gripping story makes this a first-rate thriller.
