It was his weapon of choice, a stiletto, that gave him his code-name, Die Nadel, The Needle. For Britain's MI5 he was just as hard to find and time was running out-fast. The Needle was the only German to know that the Allies' Calais landing was a hoax, a smoke-screen for the real D-Day assault on Normandy. The Needle had to be found, had to be stopped before his information reached Berlin. And now, there was only one person left who could do the job.

Professional reviews

"Nazi forces dominate Europe, and the Allies in England are using an elaborate subterfuge to convince Germany of a massive invasion, purposely creating confusion as to its location. A German operative named Die Nadel, "The Needle," calculating and ruthless, is entrusted by Hitler himself to find out the truth. Fans of old-time radio drama will particularly enjoy this full-cast version. Narrator Eric Lincoln proceeds smoothly, until the action starts cooking, and his urgency turns up the heat. The small ensemble creates a wide range of lead and supporting characters. There are flaws--actors occasionally sound as if they're too far from the microphone, and there are both melodrama and stereotypes--but the story's compelling suspense hurtles listeners to the riveting conclusion.
