App DescriptionTHE POTSDAM BLUFF by Jack D. Hunter (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
Itâ€™s 1945, and Stalinâ€™s army stands poised to conquer Europe. The only way to stop him is for Truman to bluff him down.
To make the bluff work, C.G. Brandt, Americaâ€™s ultra-professional but very human spymaster, is forced to risk everything on Alex Lukas, an under-trained but bilingual secret agent. Lukas must escort a Soviet defector who will parachute into Bavaria with crucial information. But the defectorâ€™s plane crashes; there is a gorgeous Communist spy in the drop area; and Lukas canâ€™t believe the amount of well-armed interest in his movements.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was recorded at the Blackstone Audio studios by professional narrator Brian Emerson. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
