    Not my favorite in the series Muddle of too many history lessons Suez, Hungary, Visigoths and Vandals, Arabs and Berbers and Carolingeans, Algeria, etc with goofy orgy parties and a LeCarre esque main plot Still, enjoyable if you like the Audley books.

    One of the better Audley books Set just after the Suez crisis, this is chronologically the fourth in the series The main character, Captain Roche, is morally ambiguous but ends up trying to do the right thing The historical setting, just post Suez, post Hungary and during the Algerian war, is distant enough to be interesting and much less well known than WW 2.The plot is to some extent a comedy of errors touches upon Kipling, historical novels, Hollywood, and personal honor and the characte One of the better Audley books Set just after the Suez crisis, this is chronologically the fourth in the series The main character, Captain Roche, is morally ambiguous but ends up trying to do the right thing The historical setting, just post Suez, post Hungary and during the Algerian war, is distant enough to be interesting and much less well known than WW 2.The plot is to some extent a comedy of errors touches upon Kipling, historical novels, Hollywood, and personal honor and the characters themselves are interested in many other historical periods A nice, fat, satisfying read

    At last we get to read the story of how Audley was recruited A muchwordy book than the previous adventures, but with some neat twists and turns and cloak and dagger from both sides in the cold war.

    They re starting to look a touch dated, but you can t go wrong with these Elegantly plotted and beautifully written around long slabs of dialogue that shouldn t work but do

    While Other Paths to Glory remains my favourite Anthony Price novel Soldier No More certainly runs it close Set in the early 1950s, in a world where Britain, France and Israel on the naughty step with allies America following the debacle at Suez and the Hungarian uprising quelled by the Soviet Union The main character is British Inteligience officer called David Roche who is tasked with bringing David Audley back in to the fold after he had left the service to become a writer The problem While Other Paths to Glory remains my favourite Anthony Price novel Soldier No More certainly runs it close Set in the early 1950s, in a world where Britain, France and Israel on the naughty step with allies America following the debacle at Suez and the Hungarian uprising quelled by the Soviet Union The main character is British Inteligience officer called David Roche who is tasked with bringing David Audley back in to the fold after he had left the service to become a writer The problem is, Roche is double agent and getting Audley to do something for his pay masters is his real task The action takes place in rural France where he meets the enchanting Lady Alexandra Champeney Perowne who is part of a group intellectuals hanging out with Audley Nothing is what it seems with Mossad and the CIA apparently interested in events A rifting read with a terrific twist to finish

    After the utterly brilliant The hour of the donkey this is a let down I m a massive fan of Price and this is the only one that is a slight disappointment It takes a lot of concentration to follow the complex layers of plot, the deceptions and the motivations I wonder if I d have followed much of the plot it if I hadn t read the previous books The central character of the series is David Audley and he doesn t appear in the first half of the book There is a lot of talk about him but he st After the utterly brilliant The hour of the donkey this is a let down I m a massive fan of Price and this is the only one that is a slight disappointment It takes a lot of concentration to follow the complex layers of plot, the deceptions and the motivations I wonder if I d have followed much of the plot it if I hadn t read the previous books The central character of the series is David Audley and he doesn t appear in the first half of the book There is a lot of talk about him but he stays off stage.The late burst of action is as spectacular as ever in Price s books, but there s a lot of tangential discussion about all sorts of topics that barely touch on the plot

    Anthony Price must have gone through a navel watching stage, a desire to create a background history for his lead characters This time it s all about David Audley, the intelligent, history loving agent The main character and I m giving nothing away here is a double agent working in Paris just after the Suez Crisis He is suffering from a crisis of some sort himself when he is summoned to London He has to recruit Audley to a new intelligence gathering department being set up and, in order Anthony Price must have gone through a navel watching stage, a desire to create a background history for his lead characters This time it s all about David Audley, the intelligent, history loving agent The main character and I m giving nothing away here is a double agent working in Paris just after the Suez Crisis He is suffering from a crisis of some sort himself when he is summoned to London He has to recruit Audley to a new intelligence gathering department being set up and, in order to be successful, has to build up a picture of what actually makes Audley tick.The story is actually very well written and bears all the hallmarks of Price s books conversations in the lounge over a cup of tea, in the kitchen, the pub, a local shop It s almost like a jigsaw puzzle or a crossword and you have to work alongside our leading character in order to understand what s going on.Thoroughly enjoyable
