This is second book of the Black Orchestra series and every bit the equal of its predecessor. Kurt Mueller turns himself in to British authorities, risking his life doing so. Having escaped Germany with false papers, he would be tried as a spy or incarcerated for the remainder of the war. But knowing he was uniquely qualified to damage the Nazis he meant to persuade the British to use him as a spy.
The British warily agree to send him on a rescue mission, but early on its clear someone there wants him to fail. It's a great game of cat and mouse. He is aided again by division within the Germans which he understands more than any other.
The writing is wonderful and the narration matches it.

This was a fun sequel to The Black Orchestra! Lots of high adventure and tense twists and turns. It was a faster pace with less nuances than the first but a first rate spy romp to the last! Buy it!!

JJ Toner uses impeccable research to paint the picture of everyday life wartime Germany as the backdrop to a gripping and suspense-packed espionage thriller as Kurt Muller attempts to derail the Nazis’ plans for the first atomic weapon.
