Description

STAINED GLASS by William F. Buckley Jr. (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).

"Delightful reading for the spy thriller fan...absolutely must reading" (UPI)

A charismatic German aristocrat is rallying the country toward reunification, creating panic on both sides of the Iron Curtain. As the Cold War turns hot, Blackford Oakes is thrown into the arms of a beautiful KGB agent—and onto the horns of a moral dilemma. He must either betray her or pull the switch on his German friend.

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 professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s narrator Geoffrey Blaisdell. 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.

• EXPERIENCE. Over 7.5 hours of narration. Created as a Folium enhancedAudio™ edition, this book includes extra functions and features not found on lesser players.

• PLAYER CONTROLS. Includes listen (play), pause, multi-speed fast forward/reverse, jump ahead/back, chapter skip, volume control, one-touch chapter- and bookmark browser. There is also a “scrub” bar that finds any point inside the chapter with just a tap.

• SLEEP TIMER. Have you ever fallen asleep watching TV or listening to a book? If so, you'll love this feature. Once set, the book will stop, place a bookmark, and allow you to jump back to where you probably began dozing.

• CLEAR & ELEGANT DESIGN. Simple, clean, intuitive, and smarter than average.

• CHAPTER TIMINGS. Always know how much time it will take to finish a chapter. Plus, the progress bar at the top of the screen shows how far into the book you’ve come.

• OFFLINE LISTENING. You are airplane-ready! Once downloaded, listen uninterrupted without threat from a lost network connection. Downloads are usually just 5-10 minutes, but depend upon your network speed.

• AUTO-BOOKMARKING. The player remembers where you stopped listening and returns to that exact spot when you open the book again.

• TELL-A-FRIEND. An easy way to recommend the book to your friends or Twitter feed.

• FEEDBACK. Share your ideas for books, functions, and features. We are very responsive to our listeners and appreciate all feedback and ideas.

RATING: Suitable for adults/young adults who enjoy reading about dashing secret agents, dangerous women, and political tensions.

_

CIA superspy Blackford Oakes, fresh from his daring exploits at Windsor Castle, has been entrusted with a matter of some delicacy: finding the perfect blue to restore the war-damaged windows of a thirteenth-century German chapel. The owner of the chapel, Axel Wintergrin, is not only an old friend but a charismatic hero who is rising to power in Germany. He is rallying his countrymen toward reunification, an idea that creates panic on both sides of the Iron Curtain. When Oakes gets entangled with a beautiful KGB agent, the tensions become personal, and he must decide who to pull the switch on.
