From the first sentence in "Berlin Match" to the last paragraph of "Charity", Len Deighton has created a masterpiece of intrigue, double-dealing and the cloak and dagger mentality that is peculiar to the British Secret Service. Looking at Bernard Samson and his family, friends, enemies and detractors has made for an extremely interesting read: I believe that I read all nine in about a month and a half.
In a style similar to John LeCarre, Deighton takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride that starts out with trepidation, builds to a almost certain climax, only to finish with an entirely different ending than anticipated. I disagreed with the author's statement that each novel can stand alone and be read in any sequence. I believe that each book laid a groundwork that the following novel picked up and developed further.
I highly recommend this nine volume series and would welcome Mr. Deighton to write a final Bernard Samson work. Enjoy, and good readuing!

One of the best espionage books ever written, Very few bullets but lots of interpersonal interplay - more of an office politics epic than a shoot-em-up. Brilliant scene-making.Published 10 months ago by Hobart Harris
What a fun, interesting, and satirical read. I highly recommend for lovers of political/international intrigue, especially if a trip to Berlin is anticipated.Published on May 24, 2014 by nancy mason
