Summary

When ex-Major Ed Parker of the US Army is pushed over a cliff at Pointe du Hoc following the anniversary of D-Day, a crisis is sparked in British Intelligence. The cream of the Secret Service gather: Dr. Audley, Oliver St John Latimer, Commander Cable, Dr. Paul Mitchell. But none will take on the case. Why is the investigation left to inexperienced Elizabeth Loftus? Is there any truth in the old rumour that Parker was a KGB double agent?

Elizabeth must ponder these and many other questions as she pries the lid off a can of worms forty years old - and suspicion begins to fall on her most respected colleagues.

Anthony Price was born in England in 1928. He became a captain in the British Army before studying at Oxford University, then became a journalist on the Westminster Press and Oxford Times. Price is the author of nineteen novels featuring Dr David Audley and Colonel Jack Butler, which focus on a group of counter-intelligence agents. Approximately twenty years elapse between the first and last novel in the series, and most of the plots are connected with one or more important events in military history. The first three novels were adapted into a six-part BBC TV drama in the 1980s, and The Labyrinth Makers (for which he won a CWA Silver Dagger) and Other Paths to Glory have both been produced as BBC radio dramas.

Jilly Bond ruins this story


OK each of us likes different voices. A little Jilly goes a long way
For me Jilly Bond is just plain destructive to this story.
Because I do like Anthony Price's novels I have tried two of them with Jilly reading.

'No More' I cry.

Story is not bad at all but if you are tempted to purchase this audio, listen to the sample.
