Publisher's Summary

In the rural peace of modern England, a war game recreates the slaughter of the Civil War. But when the battle ends, a real corpse is left it the Swine Brook; and an aristocratic but impoverished revolutionary claims to have found a cache of "Cromwell's Gold".

When David Audley is called in, 17th-century secrets and the deadly game of modern espionage clash in a brilliantly intricate thriller of bluff and counterbluff.

    Story
    "Spanish Gold! Cromwell! And a Red Heir!"
    What made the experience of listening to War Game the most enjoyable?

    The story - I love its twists and turns, and the resolution - in both senses of the word. And the character of David Audley. A book with lots of Audley is always more enjoyable ...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of War Game?

    The chance that is taken with a chancer. More would be a spoiler, I think


    Which character – as performed by Dan Morgan – was your favourite?

    As I've implied David Audley is my favourite character - but I have to wonder why, in this and in Soldier No More, he has given the public school and Cambridge educated young man from Sussex should speak with a detectable Yorkshire accent - vowels sounds more reminiscent of Sean Bean as Sharpe than the landed, educated, Southern! Audley

    Story
    "This time it's re enacted battles between Cromwell"


    and the Royalists on the old battlegrounds. English Civil War.

    Do not expect Martin Cruze-Smith or even LeCarre, and you could get a palatable dose of
    interesting history. As well as 'Spy vs Spy'
    English polies not wanting a rightful heir to collect his millions and no one telling anyone what the game is really about.
    A story about those Rusky and the KGB. Curious CIA operatives. Spanish gold robbed from South America and stolen again by the Russians during or after the Spanish Civil War. And yes a little about cunning and good luck. Cromwell's.
