Review:

‘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
