Publisher's Summary

Wehrmacht Major Faust has a dangerous secret: He likes England. But it's May 1940 and his Panzers are blasting the British Army off Dunkirk's beach, so he keeps his mouth shut even though it hurts. When the Waffen SS try to murder their English prisoners of war, Faust helps the POWs escape. Now it's treason, with his neck on the line.
Then a friend gets him drunk, straps him into a parachute, and throws him out over Oxford during a bombing run. He's quickly caught. Because he helped type the battle plan for the invasion of England, Faust cannot allow himself to be broken in interrogation. Two German armies depend on it. But every time he escapes, someone rapes and murders a woman and the English are looking for someone to hang. He's risking disaster if he stays, someone else's life if he runs, and execution by the Gestapo if he makes it home.
Major Stoner, professor turned British intelligence officer, sees three possibilities. Faust perhaps was joyriding in that bomber, as he claims. Or he's on a reconnaissance mission for the German invasion. Or he's a spy. Stoner must break Faust to learn the truth, no matter how it strains his old heart. He must save England, and his granddaughter. Their battlefield is confined to a desktop. Only one of them can win. Someone must break. Someone must make a deal with the Devil.

Good Story Poor Narrator

Is there anything you would change about this book?

It would have been better if narrator had not invented falsetto voices for the characters. Mostly these falsettos were patently false, often mispronounced and sometimes unintelligible.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Excellent plot but on this occasion would have been better in text form.

What didn’t you like about Seth Michael Donsky’s performance?

See above. Will not purchase audio books again with him as story teller.

Could you see Deal with the Devil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes even unknown actors could make this book a successful screen play/film
