‘It speaks volumes for Deighton’s skill as a storyteller that, years after the Berlin Wall came down, he can still set the nerve-ends jangling with a thriller set in the Cold War… His sense of pace is extraordinary, as is his sense of mood’ Sunday TelegraphFrom the Back Cover:
Bernard is trying hard to readjust his life in the face of questions about his wife Fiona, and her defection to the East. Is she the brilliant high-flyer that her Department seems to think she is? Or is she a spent force, a wife and mother unwilling or unable to face her domestic responsibilities? Bernard doesn’t know but is determined to find out.
Bernard’s flamboyantly dressed boss Dicky is certainly not anxious to reveal what he knows, as he jostles for power with Fiona herself in London Central, and takes to the road with Bernard on a mysterious mission to Poland.
