Reviews

The smoothness with which narrator Robert Whitfield handles the wide array of foreign accents adds an international flavor to this suspenseful espionage thriller. One of Britain's most valued and productive spies wants to defect to the West after decades of service. He has requested that Bernard Samson, a veteran British intelligence agent who now enjoys the safety of his senior level desk job, help him escape. Samson is obliged to undertake the project since the spy saved his life when he was a field agent in East Berlin long ago. When Samson discovers evidence that the KGB has infiltrated British intelligence, he knows he must move quickly to return to Cold War-era East Berlin before his colleague's identity is exposed. Deighton's (Spy Sinker, Audio Reviews, LJ 4/15/95) dignified narrative style gives the program a properness that is characteristic of high-level government proceedings. A worthwhile purchase for most public libraries.‘Mark P. Tierney, Charles Cty. Pub. Schs., Waldorf, MD

'Deighton's best novel to date - sharp, witty and sour, like Raymond Chandler adapted to British gloom and the multiple betrayals of the private spy' Observer 'Sheer consistent rightness page after page after page' The Times 'Virtuoso top level performance' Guardian 'A masterly performance, much the best thing Deighton has done since SS-GB' Sunday Times
