Publisher's Summary

A bold experiment has mutated a small fraction of humanity. Nations race to harness the gifted, putting them to increasingly dark ends. At the dawn of global war, flashy American superheroes square off against sinister Germans and dissolute Russians. Increasingly depraved scientists conduct despicable research in the name of victory.

British agents Fogg and Oblivion, recalled to the Retirement Bureau, have kept a treacherous secret for over 40 years. But all heroes must choose when to join the fray, and to whom their allegiance is owed - even for just one perfect summer's day.

A good story, well-narrated

I struggled to find the best way to review this book. It's a good story, and the narration is excellent, but I don't think audio is the right medium for it. Given the nonlinear storyline and the author's propensity for clipped sentence fragments, it strikes me that this story would really be better enjoyed actually being read than heard. I don't say that often, because I vastly prefer listening to reading. Your mileage may vary, of course, but if you are the sort who likes to reread sections, to flip back and forth through a book to really get into the nuts and bolts of a story, you may want to consider getting this one to read instead of in audio.
