‘A master of fictional espionage’ Daily Mail
‘In Deighton’s best books – like this one – the narrative glides forward on rollers, and the scenes and characters fit perfectly into place. The result is marvellous’ Independent
Millions of pounds have gone missing, and the Department have sent agent Bernard Samson to Washington to track them down. But this mission is just the start of something far deeper and darker. It will take him from the English suburbs to Berlin, the South of France to Los Angeles and the heart of a maelstrom. In the first part of the Hook, Line and Sinker trilogy, friends become enemies, pursuer becomes victim and no one – not even Bernard himself – is above suspicion.
