'Spy Line is vigorous and sleazy, psychologically complex and action-packed. And it is always exciting' Daily Mail
Bernard Samson is a spy on the run. But in the murky streets of Berlin, he knows where to hide. Wanted for an act of treachery he has not committed, he must not only escape the grasp of London Central, but get to the bottom of a tangled conspiracy that is about to change everything. In the thrilling penultimate instalment of the Hook, Line and Sinker trilogy, Bernard's personal and professional life collide with devastating consequences.
A BERNARD SAMSON NOVEL
Spy Line is vigorous and sleazy, psychologically complex and action-packed. It is always exciting.
This is vintage Deighton.
No one can evoke the city of Berlin better than Deighton.
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.
