Birth of a Spy – Duncan Swindells

Birth of a Spy

Birth of a Spy by Duncan Swindells

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Really enjoyed the story line. Nazis, spies, old Enigma codes there is a lot here to enjoy. The plot was well defined and the main character was well developed. I did struggle through the first part of the book though. Long descriptions and a lack of dialog made it, at times, difficult to follow. At that point the action picks up and the story moves much better. Overall I would say the plot carried the book and the lack of dialog held it back, especially in the beginning.

If you enjoy spy novels or delving into WWII alternate history then I would certainly recommend. I would read a follow up.
