"The Iron Duke" Book Review...

...I finished up the audio version of "The Iron Duke" by L. Ron Hubbard.

The Iron Duke

Meet Blacky Lee, ruggedly handsome with a quick wit and a roguish charm. Think Clark Gable with larceny in his heart and a price on his head. A price put there by the German Gestapo. But Blacky's always got an angle, and this time it s as audacious as they come. He'll hide in plain sight, impersonating the crowned head of a Balkan kingdom. He'll become The Iron Duke.

Can he pull it off? Win the love of a country...and of a beautiful woman? All Blacky has to do is risk everything and, for once in his life, find a way to do the right thing. Get in on the deception as the audio version of The Iron Duke puts you in the middle of the royal con game.

I think I would have enjoyed this book better if I had read the book first!  I had to restart it several times to get all the characters straight in my mind.  I did enjoy the different voices and the actual taping was nice and clear so if I’d been more familiar with the story line, I could have imagined it better in my mind.
The story was suspenseful and I love a book when you can’t figure out the ending. Book was witty and contained lots of good humor.  Book has a little of everything, romance, thrill, mystery, adventure….should meet everyone’s approval.
