5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sequel to `Operation Armada', 13 Sep 2013
By 
This review is from: The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Parsifal (Kindle Edition)
It's five years after the first `Ian Fleming Files' adventure (`The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada') and 17F has been called into action in the final stages of the war. Hitler is destroying himself and Germany faces imminent defeat. Only a secret society of anti-Hitlerian Nazis named Parsifal have other plans. They want to assassinate the Fuhrer and replace him with Rommel. Britain's Naval Intelligence dispatches Ian Fleming to Cairo to meet with Peter Ugarte, Parsifal's treasurer who has defected and absconded with the head of Parsifal's fiancee... It's a terrific set-up and the rest of the plot is a whirlwind ride. I think this book marks an improvement on `Operation Armada.' The action has been toned down to be more credible and the characterizations have more depth. Ian Fleming feels fully dimensional and there's a lot more going on than just fights with Nazis and bedding beauties (tho there's plenty of that too!). `The Ian Fleming Files' is shaping up to be a meaty series, one readers can really sink their teeth into. I was very impressed with the overall writing. A solid entertainment up there with the best spy and World War 2 fiction. Recommended to fans of Daniel Silva, Laura Hillenbrand and of course Ian Fleming!
