9780008124816: Billion-Dollar Brain

The classic spy thriller of lethal computer-age intrigue and a maniac’s private cold war, featuring the same anonymous narrator and milieu of The IPCRESS File.

The fourth of Deighton’s novels to be narrated by the unnamed employee of WOOC(P) is the thrilling story of an anti-communist espionage network owned by a Texan billionaire, General Midwinter, run from a vast computer complex known as the Brain.

After having been recruited by Harvey Newbegin, the narrator travels from the bone-freezing winter of Helsinki, Riga and Leningrad, to the stifling heat of Texas, and soon finds himself tangling with enemies on both sides of the Iron Curtain.

Review:

‘Dazzlingly intelligent and subtle’ Sunday Times

‘Worthy of Raymond Chandler… intelligent… inventive… constantly entertaining’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Such credibility, such accurate line-by-line beaming of a sheer sense of the actual… a glittering, wintry entertainment’ The Guardian

‘Deighton is so far in the front of other writers in the field that they are not even in sight’ Sunday Times

‘Nobody now seriously doubts that Deighton is the most credible of all the spysmiths’ The Scotsman
