Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I would if they liked boyish adventure or were interested in history or social history
What did you like best about this story?
It continues the adventures of Hannay and he has a realistic shaped life
Have you listened to any of Peter Joyce’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Peter Joyce plays it marvellously, his character is realistic and he hits the right tones for coin of phrase. I happily listened for hours at a time
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
If I had time yes
Any additional comments?
Loved it, not as thrilling as the others, but a good tale.

The fourth Hannay book and IMO better than the
preceding three tales. A more complete story which slowly builds, but never interestingly, into a thrilling climax.
Richard Hannay is a great character in English literature but I've yet to see him properly translated to film or TV. Maybe not a bad thing though. Imagination always triumphs visualisation.
Peter Joyce does a fine job as presenter/reader.
The characters are of the time in which they perform so the social views sound distinctly old fashioned and rather racist but the storytelling is excellent. Thoroughly enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended
