Publisher's Summary

Just who were the three men the Soviet and American superpowers exchanged on Berlin's Glienicke Bridge on February 10, 1962? Bridge of Spies is the true story of those men - Rudolf Abel, a Soviet Spy who was a master of disguise; Gary Powers, an American who was captured when his spy plane was shot down; and Frederic Pryor, a young American doctor mistakenly identified as a spy.
The men in this three-way political swap had been drawn into the nadir of the Cold War by duty and curiosity, and the same tragicomedy of errors that induced Khrushchev to send missiles to Castro. They were rescued against daunting odds by fate and by their families, and then all but forgotten.
This is their story.

Gripping - far better then expected.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I downloaded this book on a whim, wasn't expecting that much but it turned out to be a gripping read/listen. One of the best audio books I've downloaded.

What other book might you compare Bridge of Spies to and why?

If you like history, particularly the cold war era, then this book would be a great listen. The explanation of the U2 incident was excellent and I learnt a lot.

Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keebleā€™s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great narration, adds a great deal to the book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
