Summary

Find the truth; risk everything. A gripping WWII spy novel full of intrigue and peril from a modern master. 

1942: a German spy comes ashore on a desolate stretch of Lincolnshire beach. But he is hunted down by a young detective, Richard Prince. The secret services have need of a man like him.... 

In occupied Europe, Denmark is a hotbed of problems for British intelligence. Rumours of a war-ending weapon being developed by the Germans are rife. Sent to Copenhagen, Prince is soon caught in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Dodging Gestapo agents, SS muscle and the danger of betrayal, his survival - and the war effort - hangs in the balance. 

Gripping and intense, Prince of Spies is the first in a new espionage series that will delight fans of Alan Furst, Philip Kerr and John le Carré.

Sabotage by narrator ..

Why was an excellent Alex Gerlis spy story allowed anywhere near this narrator? It would have been better read by Siri or possibly my cat. What a shame !

Ending?

Ending seems abrupt- as if there will be another book- unsatisfactory
Will there be another?
