Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Nightfall Berlin by Jack Grimwood, read by Daniel Weyman. 

In 1986, news that East-West nuclear-arms negotiations are taking place lead many to believe the Cold War may finally be thawing.

For British intelligence officer Major Tom Fox, however, it is business as usual.

Ordered to arrange the smooth repatriation of a defector, Fox is smuggled into East Berlin. But it soon becomes clear that there is more to this than an old man wishing to return home to die - a fact cruelly confirmed when Fox's mission is fatally compromised.

Trapped in East Berlin, hunted by an army of Stasi agents and wanted for murder by those on both sides of the Wall, Fox must somehow elude capture and get out alive.

But to do so he must discover who sabotaged his mission and why....

blinking marvellous spy caper

Great characters, atmosphere, plot (a bit far-fetched inevitably but that's rather the nature of the beast). Way different from the author's SF and historical fantasy stuff but with the same richness. I don't much care about spy thrillers on the whole but this one hit the spot. Like Bond for grown-ups.

too complex

very difficult to follows the many sub plots. Also too much detail about incidental characters. The final scenes are totally unbelievable

Awesome second book. Daniel Weyman is 10/10

At the end of the Moskva (book 1), Major Fox's investigation opened up a story/crimes that both East and west would like to forget, so the PM at Major Fox's father in laws suggestion is sent to bring home a traitor. But no one and nothing is as it seems. Only his friends in Moscow have the power to help save him and his family. However they too have as much too loose and it maybe that the death of an English spy and his Son is a price they might not see as too high. Truly awesome follow up and Daniel Weyman if not the very best Narrator audible has ever had... Is definately up there with the greats, such as Scott Brick and Jeff Harding, don't loose him ever!
