Publisher's Summary

It's not unusual for spies to have secrets, but Henry Hunter has more than most, and after he is stopped by British Intelligence at Croydon airport on the eve of the Second World War, he finds he has even more.

In March 1941 in Berlin, haunted by a dark episode from his past, he makes a fateful decision resulting in a dramatic journey to the Swiss frontier, with a shocking outcome.

    Story
    "Well written but not well produced."

    An exciting and enjoyable read with plenty of hooks to keep the reader interested. The narrator is a very good actor with the ability to convey different voices and accents, however much of the action takes place in Germany or German speaking Switzerland and his erratic and annoyingly inaccurate German pronunciation is very irritating for anyone who knows the language. German has easy pronunciation rules which even a non speaker can learn and master. Certainly this gifted reader with his good ear for accents could have mastered it. It seems no one prepared him.
    Apart from that it's a good and well read novel.
