On the eve of D-Day, a British secret agent with unique powers goes behind Nazi lines.
Michael Gallatin is a British spy with a peculiar talent: the ability to transform himself into a wolf. Although his work in North Africa helped the Allies win the continent in the early days of World War II, he quit the service when a German spy shot his lover in her bed. Now, three years later, the army asks him to end his retirement and parachute into occupied Paris. A mysterious German plan called the Iron Fist threatens the D-Day invasion, and the Nazi in charge is the spy who betrayed Michael’s lover. The werewolf goes to France for king and country, hoping for a chance at bloody vengeance.
"Simon Prebble's elegant narration adds dignity to a potentially tawdry premise: a British spy in Nazi-occupied Europe during WWII who is secretly a werewolf. As it turns out, McCammon's storyline is surprisingly plausible, and Prebble persuasively voices the spy's tortured introspection about his identity as well as the horrors of the Nazi regime…. Prebble articulates a wide range of characters--from a beautiful French Resistance warrior to a sneering Nazi officer--with just enough color to distinguish them. Also notable are Prebble's voices for the spy's fellow werewolves and his perfect pacing as the spy is almost cornered." (AudioFile)

Can a Story be Insufficiently Ridiculous?
A Must Listen
Awesome character development, tight plot even if stretching belief at times but researched well and many historical facts are woven into this fast moving tale. Its ironic that i accepted the man-wolf-man mythology but rejected some of the Norway Chemical plant scenes as far fetched!
I love simon prebble's voice! His narration is top notch in this- to portray many voices and accents from across Europe during World War 2 and American also is a feat in itself.
Satisfying Action/fantasy/historical fiction. Satisfyingly long also. Robert Mc Cammon well done! I want more.
