9780002244701: Charity (The Samson series)

Bernard Samson returns to Berlin in the final novel in the classic spy trilogy, FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY

Bernard continues to chip away at the mystery of his sister-in-law Tessa Kosinski’s death in Berlin on the crucial night when his wife Fiona was brought out of the East. Fighting to uncover the truth, he must also confront the key relationships in his own life: Fiona is still far from stable now that she has returned to work, and their children remain in the clutches of his wealthy and manipulative father-in-law. Meanwhile, Werner Volkmann, Bernard’s friend since childhood, is reluctant to get involved in Bernard’s crusade.

A wonderful depiction both of covert operations and office politics, Charity is packed with action, incident and intrigue, bringing to a triumphant conclusion a series of ten novels that represents one of the great acheivements of modern English fiction.

BERNARD SAMSON

With the Cold War drawing to a close, Bernard finds that office life – whether in London or Berlin – can be just as perilous as operating in the field. Surrounded by schemers and their secrets, he must look out for his own interests.

GLORIA KENT

Bernard’s lover in the time when his wife was thought to have defected to the East, Gloria now wants to make a new future for herself – which forces Bernard to think all the more about his own.
