The life-and-death hunt for a notorious Nazi criminal unfolds against a background of international arms deals. As the story leads to its final dramatic confrontation on a bleak winter's hill-top, the question every reader asked at the end of The Day of the Jackal will inevitably be asked again: Can this be fiction?

a bit bloated
surprising; overly detailed
the pronunciation of the non-english names
no, the diary entry and the war detail were too long
i enjoyed the story but it seemed( not true but seemed ) as if the Nazi war stories took up half the story. In my opinion, it was too much, too long.
Without it, the story would be nice but perhaps some people would feel it was too short.
Not all the extra layers were necessary, i think.
Frederick Forsyth, Jack Higgens, Bernard Cornwell to name a few are 'Big Boys Own Adventure' stuff. Not too much detail to bog you down, but just enough to keep the pace flowing. A pleasant experience this audiobook.
The Werewolf is so good. Got to love it when a baddy is written up so well.
Excellent performance; with accents, style of speech and his consistency.
When the past catches up with you it won't knock on the door, it may well be kicked in.
It is great to see how a major character does not necessary cause all effects but is important to events that he has no idea he is effecting. Lovely writing.
