What did you like best about A Foreign Country? What did you like least?
After an interesting beginning, the story loses some steam and the plot gets a little far fetched. The reason for the French secret service being the bad guy is given a weak explanation. Over all, this proved to be just an ordinary audiobook.

Would you be willing to try another book from Charles Cumming? Why or why not?
Yes! I have listened to several other Cumming books. I enjoy the stories involving the WWI nurse.
What does Jot Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The reader did a good job and made it easier to finish the story. Had I read the book, I might have given it up.
Could you see A Foreign Country being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
It is not a blockbuster story. I doubt it is unique and/or compelling enough for a movie or TV show.
Any additional comments?
I enjoy my Audible membership. On the rare occasions that I have had problem your customer service staff resolved them promptly.

So many reviews promise spy thrillers similar to le Carre and Greene. This one does have echoes. I liked it much more than Steinhauer, whose characters I can't seem to care about. Cumming's ending wouldn't have come from le Carre or Greene (planning a series?) but this was the first thriller in a long time I wanted to listen to without a break. Another reviewer suggested it's a slow starter; but I was hooked from the first paragraph.
