"[Martin] narrates in a very precise and clipped tempo moving things along at an excellent pace that conveys the suspense and the comic interludes." -SoundCommentary.com, Starred Review

"A well-paced war diary, Marks's memoir traces the strategically vital creation of secure codes for Allied agents operating in Nazi-occupied territories." ---Publishers Weekly

"Exciting, witty, and compelling . . . The hustle and bustle of London in the war years comes alive in this captivating story of keeping the Allies' secret agents secret." ---Kirkus

"With dry British humor and all of the suspense of a spy thriller, screenwriter Marks tells of his remarkable career as a cryptologist with British Intelligence during World War II." ---Library Journal

"Deftly narrated by Eric Martin . . . Very highly recommended, especially for community library audio book collections." ---Midwest Book Review
