Ben MacIntyre's DOUBLE CROSS is a story of the unsung heroes of WWII, British spies who posed as agents for the Third Reich. It's a true story, based on documents only recently released, and a must for history buffs. John Lee does an expert job narrating the book, which is complicated by dozens of ethnic characters, each with a particular dialect and peculiar mannerisms. The story can be appreciated as an audiobook, but a WWII aficionado will need the actual book to keep track of all the characters. Lee's performance emphasizes that double agents were not the square-jawed patriots seen in movies. They had strange motives and psychological compulsions and were a petty odd lot, yet responsible for the Allies’ victory. M.S. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2012]
