Hornet Flight

$7.99

This is one of the better Audible books I have heard. It is set in Nazi-occupied Denmark. The author leads off with the statement, "Some of what follows really happened." Sometimes that is an indication that the plot will be preposterous. Not in this case. The story has an authentic feel to it. The characters are likeable or hatable as appropriate and well developed. Best of all, the story grabs you quickly and never lulls.
Try Hornet Flight; you will enjoy it.

About the book:Hornet Flight is a World War II based spy thriller written by British author Ken Follett. It was published in 2002 by Macmillan in the UK and Dutton in the US. Hornet Flight is a fictionalized retelling of actual events. Follett's website states that his inspiration for the story came from Leo Marks, a former Special Operations Executive employee, who wrote a brief account in his book, Between Silk and Cyanide: A Codemaker's Story 1941-1945 about two young Danes who found a derelict de Havilland Hornet Moth biplane, repaired it, and flew it to Britain. While that event inspired the use of two teen-aged Danes as his primary characters, the story of the photographing of the German radar station and flying the film to Britain was actually that of Thomas Christian Sneum, a flight lieutenant in the Danish Naval Air Service, who made the flight to Britain in a Hornet with the mechanic who helped him rebuild it, Keld Peterson, on 21 June 1941. Sneum was arrested as a suspected double agent before being returned to Denmark as an agent, from which he escaped again in 1942 by crossing the ice to Sweden with a fellow naval aviator.
