From the acclaimed master of action and suspense. The all-time classic.

Alistair MacLean Never Ages

What did you love best about Puppet on a Chain?

The story was great, classic MacLean, and Oliver's narration was spot on.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes

What does Jonathan Oliver bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He does a great job of pulling the reader into the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

tragic

I'm always delighted to read or listen to one of Alistair Maclean's books... but this one is not one of my absolute favorite books. Too much death and macabre happenings to be as fun as most of his books. Still, excellent writing and excellent audio narration.
