Summary

Paris, 1943. The swastika flies from the top of the Eiffel Tower. Soldiers clad in field grey patrol the streets. Buildings have been renamed, books banned, art stolen and people disappeared. 

Amongst the missing is an Allied intelligence cell. Gone to ground? Betrayed? Dead? Britain's Special Operations Executive need to find out. They recruit ex-Parisian and Bletchley Park codebreaker Harry Mitchell to return to the city he fled two years ago. 

Mitchell knows occupied Paris - a city at war with itself. Informers, gangsters, collaborators and Resistance factions are as ready to slit each other's throats as they are the Germans'. The occupiers themselves are no better: the Gestapo and the Abwehr - military intelligence - are locked in their own lethal battle for dominance. 

Mitchell knows the risks: a return to Paris not a mission - it's a death sentence. But he has good reason to put his life on the line: the wife and daughter he was forced to leave behind have fallen into the hands of the Gestapo, and Mitchell will do whatever it takes to save them. 

But with disaster afflicting his mission from the outset, it will take all his ingenuity, all his courage, to even get into Paris...unaware that every step he takes towards the capital is a step closer to a trap well set and baited.

Just one major glaring flaw..........

The SOE would not send someone into Occupied France with knowledge of Bletchley Park and the cracking of the Enigma code.

Apart from that (which I can get over) a great listen.

Great Read

Kept me hooked all the way through some improbable luck maybe came the protagonists way but gladly no real Hollywood heroics. Thoroughly enjoyed.

A bit predictable

I found it a bit predictable no real twist to the story, more Mills and Boon than Alistair McLean I'm afraid.

It’s all rather silly.

The characters a mix of stereotypes and cliches, the plot silly and Implausible. It’s all a bit Allo Allo meets The da Vinci Code...
Given the historical context and rich source material it’s really rather disappointing.

very good listen

A very interesting storyline with intriguing characters have to say that audible books are made by the performance of the narrator and in this he was 5 star
