Not quite as good as the first book in this series but enjoyable nonetheless There was one lapse in the plot I found laughable though.
Better This was engaging than book 1 in the series Well paced action that kept the book lively The good guys are just realistic enoughyou end up with a sense of relief that the Allies aren t painted too darkly.
Great Spy NovelThis book was thrilling from start to finish It was very different from The Black Orchestra, the only similarity being our hero Kurt Muller I highly commend it for espionage fans.
Another J J Toner special in the backdrop of the 2nd World War There is action, there is a chase and some suspense as well.
