The Secret Agent audiobook

The Secret Agent audiobook
by Joseph Conrad (1857-1924)

The Secret Agent is Conrad’s dark, and darkly comic story of a band of spies, anarchists, agents-provocateurs plotting and counter-plotting in the back streets of London in the early 20th Century. The novel centers on Verloc, a shop-owner, phony-anarchist and double-agent, who becomes embroiled in an ambitious terrorist plan to bomb the Greenwich Observatory.

The Secret Agent was the first recording done for LibriVox.
