Published In: United Kingdom, 29 September 2011
January 1942. Rommel's seemingly invincible Afrika Korps is at the gates of Egypt - perhaps soon to threaten Cairo itself. And Rommel has a spy in the city - a source so well-informed that the German commander knows in advance every movement of the allied forces. Amongst the teeming streets and bazaars, the British, led by Major Albert Cutler, must find him. But Cairo is a city of fool's gold, where nothing and nobody, not even Cutler, can be taken at face value... This new reissue includes a foreword from the cover designer, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arnold Schwartzman, and a brand new introduction by Len Deighton, which offers a fascinating insight into the writing of the story.

Born in London, Len Deighton served in the RAF before graduating from the Royal College of Art (which recently elected him a Senior Fellow). While in New York City working as a magazine illustrator he began writing his first novel, The Ipcress File, which was published in 1962. He is now the author of more than thirty books of fiction and non-fiction. At present living in Europe, he has, over the years, lived with his family in ten different countries from Austria to Portugal.

Reviews

`A superb example of Deighton's craft'Robert Harris, Sunday Times `Intrigue and suspense... City of Gold is excellent!' The Times `The hallmarks of a Deighton novel are an intricate plot, an easy grasp of detail and a total mastery of storytelling technique' Sunday Times `The pace of the story is compulsive... it is a real pleasure to be swallowed up in Deighton's description of wartime Cairo' Daily Telegraph `A brilliantly drawn background, a huge cast, and a plot as well-machined as a Bentley's gearbox' Evening Standard
