  • 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 entertainment.

  • Vintage, treble-crossing, East-West intrigue ... written with Deighton's usual punch and economy.

  • Len Deighton is the Flaubert of the contemporary thriller writers.

    Michael Howard, Times Literary Supplement
  • Deighton's outstanding achievement is the nine-volume series chronicling the life and times of Bernard Samson ... Deighton's Samson trilogies are as much about the elusiveness of human interactions as espionage. Spying is not a secret world sealed off from ordinary life but an extension of the world we all live in.

    John Gray, New Statesman
