A Spy Story Audiobook

Audiobook 7-CD set now available at


An American spy undercover for almost a year behind enemy lines – this was the life of Helias Doundoulakis when he was an agent for the Office of Strategic Services (the “OSS”) during World War II. In his spy story audiobook, Doundoulakis looks back to his training in one of the key intelligence agencies of the war, his experience in espionage and his remarkable metamorphosis from boy to man, man to soldier and from soldier to spy. Truly, one of the best audiobooks you will ever hear!

Chased by the Gestapo from Crete, he is rescued by the SOE's Patrick Leigh Fermor, escaping to Egypt on a British torpedo boat. Due to his experience with the SOE (Special Operations Executive) and his fluency in Greek, English and German, he was recruited by the OSS, an episode that would change his life forever. At 91, he recalls his incredible odyssey, how he dodged the Germans, and survived the carnage of war on his mission to Salonica, Greece. Constantly moments from death – his wireless radio in plain view – he resolves to take a poison pill to end his life if captured. Yet, he miraculously survived to tell the tale. This is his story of survival, hope and, ultimately, victory.
