Publisher's Summary

When fifteen-year-old American Hailey Portman goes missing in Switzerland, her desperate parents seek the help of their neighbor, Finn Harrington, a seemingly quiet historian rumored to be a former spy.
Sensing the story runs deeper than anyone yet knows, Finn reluctantly agrees to make some enquiries. He has little to go on other than his instincts, and his instincts have been wrong in the past - sometimes spectacularly wrong.
But he gets involved anyway, never imagining that Hailey's disappearance might be linked to the tragic events that ended his career six years earlier, drawing him back into a deadly world that has neither forgiven nor forgotten.

Exciting New Author for Me

With over 600 books in my library, I find myself struggling for good read (or listen). By chance, I tried Wignall's "A Death in Sweden" and now "The Traitor's Story". Both stories, narrators and characters are quite different. A clue to settings and, etc. comes from looking at who does the narrations ... and both quite accomplished.

Kevin Wignall is an excellent writer ... and his work has been well-polished for publication. As a heavy mysteries and suspense reader, I have found only a few can muster up original story lines and assemble non-stereotypical characters to animate them. I would say Mr. Wignall is quite good at both story and character development.

As of now, Wignall has not decided to serialize a protagonist. If he continues in this manner or decides to serialize either of the main protagonists in the 2 books, that's OK with me ... he's got me as a reader for now.

A Great Start to a Serial? I Hope!!!

This one has everything good -- Simon Prebble narrating, Wignall's superb prose, and a fascinating, edge of the seat mystery. The story focuses on a "retired" spy who gets drawn back into sleuthing and spying due to the mysterious disappearance of a 15- year old neighbor. the narrative gives listeners a great "current" story while adding in the details of why the spy retired; which by the way are strongly connected to the contemporary tale that Wignall created. Lovers of good mysteries will enjoy this -- a good cat and mouse romp through Europe!
