Retrieved 8 November Loved it Really good reading to be told. Enjoy all the book by this Author. What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you? What could Douglas Reeman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you? Did the narration match the pace of the story? I say obscure reason because they always seem to follow the same pattern which includes the "love interest" for the main character.

However, the plot here is as always very well researched and the book offers the normal, enjoyable if slightly predictable escapism. I would not, however, want this personal review to be construed as criticism in any way. If it were, I would not keep returning for more of the same! Having only recently converted to Audible I am absolutely very pleased to have found a new "reading" experience. The quality is exceptional and David Rintoul's narration is first class.
