Beschreibung

As Hitler's forces smash into Soviet territory, a lone German scout plane is forced down. Contained in a briefcase within is a seemingly inconsequential painting of a red moth. Military Intelligence dismisses the picture as insignificant, but Stalin suspects a German plot. He summons his old adversary, Inspector Pekkala - the Finn who was Tsar Nicholas II's personal detective - to discover the real significance of this strange cargo.
As the storm gathers, Pekkala and his assistant from the Bureau of Special Operations find themselves on the track of the most formidable art thieves in history. Their real target is a secret and prized possession of the Romanovs, once considered to be the eighth wonder of the world. But as the Soviet Union crumbles, and the chaos of war is everywhere, Pekkala realizes that to protect the Tsar's treasure he must break through enemy lines. He must outfox the Germans, or face the wrath of Stalin....

Hilfreichste

interesting, but predictable

The story would have had room for some more historic depth. At some point it appears that Stalin did worry about nothing else than about the Amber Room. In the middle of the story I was guessing the culprit.
The strange use of stereotype Russian accents puzzled me. Steven Pacey is brilliant as always and saves this audio book.

IMO, The Red Moth serves well as a nice story while driving the car, not more.
