This is a great story, hampered by poor narration. I almost stopped listening and asked for my money back. Fortunately, it got better after the first few chapters.
The first few chapters sounded like they were speeded up and the narrator was using cartoon voices. Maj. Wallace sounds like a chipmunk, and the women’s voices sound like an effeminate man. It got reasonably bearable in later chapters, but I still cringed when he did a woman’s voice. The voices and accents were inconsistent, so it was hard to tell who was talking.
Being nit picky, he pronounced SIGABA differently than in the 10 previous books that used that radio transmitter/ receiver. The editor should have caught that.
I’m anxiously awaiting the digital copy from the library so I can get the bad taste out my ears!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is the first Griffin book I have not thoroughly enjoyed. Narration was especially poor. All the different voices was distracting. I don't recommend it.
Would you ever listen to anything by W. E. B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV again?
I'll probably always have a go at a Griffin book, even one by Butterworth, because his military novels have always been a good read, or listen, til now.
