Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee

Historical Fiction • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This novel about the assassination of a key Nazi leader during WWII is part history, part novel, and part personal reflection on how the author came to write the book and how he researched it. As a result, the listener needs to distinguish between these very different sections. Narrator John Lee moves effortlessly from the conversational sections about writing and research to the almost clinical detail of the history and the heart-stopping action of the plot. He doesn't adopt different voices, but he alters his tone and pacing for each. His German pronunciation is good, and he gives direct quotes just a touch of Teutonic brusqueness. The author’s short chapters make listening a bit difficult at the beginning, but they’re less of a problem later in the work. R.C.G.
