Description

From the master storyteller, a startling new thriller set amidst the Danish Resistance.

It is June 1941 and Denmark is under German occupation. On the rocky coast of Denmark, two brothers, Harald and Arne Olufsen, starkly different in nature, are straining against the rigid confines imposed by their austere, elderly parents and trying to find their own way in life. Meanwhile, a network of MI6 spies is attempting to decipher an encrypted Luftwaffe radio signal which mentions the new Freya-Gerät - a rudimentary form of German radar equipment.

Arne's relationship with Hermia Mount, an MI6 analyst draws him into underground politics, putting him under surveillance by the Danish security forces - and by one man in particular who has a personal motive to see Arne fall. It is only a matter of time before the brothers' paths converge in a united effort to overcome the Nazis. A disused Hornet Moth biplane is their only means of getting a vital message to the British....

Outstanding World War II spy thriller

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

If you like WWII thrillers, this is the book for you.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hornet Flight?

Probably the chase by a Danish Nazi policeman of the young hero who must fly to England with important intelligence about the Luftwaffe.

Have you listened to any of Nigel Carrington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I will certainly listen to more of his performances. He's great.

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

It was just plain fun.

Any additional comments?

Follett's attention to technical, geographic and cultural detail about Denmark in the 1940s makes the book very engaging.

good story but a little unlikely

nice book to listen to, sometimes a little funny how the main characters have almost super powers but then don't see the obvious. still very enjoyable

Ken Follett wie man ihn kennt.

Bis auf ein paar "wundersame Wendungen" zugunsten der Helden ist dies ein packender Spionagethriller vor realem Hintergrund. Manchmal etwas zu sehr an der Schwelle zum Jugendbuch. "Tribute von Panem" meets "Casablanca".
