Publisher's Summary

When Jerry Chambers, a fresh-faced young pilot, mistakenly sinks a British submarine, he is punished with a remote posting to test an experimental new bomb; a dangerous mission far away from the girl he loves. While Jerry risks his life, his sweetheart Mona sets about clearing her lover's name... but will she be too late?

"An admirably good story, full of drama and good humour." (Evening Standard)
"Direct, simple, wholly free from highfalutin nonsense and entirely charming." (Daily Mail)

Chris Rowe's narration is superb and the story is captivating as the mystery unravels. The plot gradually moves toward a crescendo of resolution and the ending is a brain stretcher.

One of his best!

I have close to fifteen of Nevil Shutes Audible books. 'I would put 'Landfall' easily in my five fav list. If you're interested in WWII from a British perspective, Shutes work is a must. If I could give the reader, Chris Rowe, more than five stars I would. He's really good at his craft!
