4.0 out of 5 stars Hooked on a new Bernard Samson series, March 2, 2001
This review is from: Spy Hook (Audio Cassette)
The start of the 2nd Trilogy, following on from 'Game, Set and Match'. This story starts with the problem of missing funds (1/2 million pounds). Bernard, ever the gopher and trouble-shooter (or is it just that he get's things done) is sent to Washington to find out what Jim Prettyman can tell London about the missing funds. Jim's not talking. First, he refuses to tell Bernard anything and then, just hours later, is apparently murdered.
We're off. On another Deighton intrigue, this one resolving itself in California. Along the way, Gloria (Bernard's girlfiend) introduces him to Dodo, a Hungarian ex-spook that used to work for the West. He seems to know things - about the money's use, about what's going on in the service, about Bernard's father's intelligence work in WWII. All of this has implications for the plot - perhaps the most convoluted and satisfying of the series.
Bernard's trip to California reveals surprises, by way of persons, thought gone, but whose appearance here helps explain the disappearance of the money and what it is being used for.
