Recommended for: WWII buffs; spy story fanciers

Just started this book on cd. Very interesting; WWII spies, Princess Diana, the Book of Kells all in a bundle! Just finished listening to this. I listened as I drove, as I ironed, as I cooked, as I nearly fell asleep. This was a lighthearted and fun book filled with characters and spanning 8 decades. There were so many twists and turns and the escapades of the "heroine" were as iimprobable as those of Indiana Jones! All in all, a light, fun read even though the main character was not well developed. For a 40 year old Ph.D. she was pretty naive, immature and underdevloped. However, the stories (fact and fiction) built around the real historical characters (Anthony Blunt, W.S.C., Ian Fleming, Prince Phillip, et. al.) were interesting and stirred speculation. Fun for WWII historical fiction fans, spy fans, Anglophiles, and silly yarn addicts. The female reader seemed more "valley girl" in her delivery but the male reader did a good job.
