Bernard Samson returns to Berlin in the first novel in the classic spy trilogy Faith, Hope and Charity.
Bernard has known that he is not getting the full picture from London Central ever since discovering that his wife, Fiona, was a double agent.
Werner Volkmann has been cast out by London Central as untrustworthy. Yet Werner still seems able to pick up information that Bernard should have been told.
This new reissue includes a foreword from the cover designer, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arnold Schwartzman, and a brand-new introduction by Len Deighton, which offers a fascinating insight into the writing of the story.

"A string of brilliantly mounted set-pieces...superbly laconic wisecracks." (The Times)
"Like lying back in a hot bath with a large malt whisky - absolute bliss...superbly combines violent action with a strong emotional undertow. The plotting in Faith is masterly, the atmospheric descriptions superb...." (Sunday Telegraph)
All the cliches about Len Deighton novels are true - cool, clever, subtle and very English. He is a smart observer of the British classs
Ystem and how it feeds through into political system
Living in rural tranquility in France. I read everything except readers' l o n g reviews of books.
Another good one. Number 7 in the triple trilogy. Wonderful series, well worth starting at the beginning - Berlin Game - with excellent narration .
This volume is a little more Bernard than spy drama.
Red them all in the 80's and unlike much of the literature of this era, despite centering around the Berlin Wall , they are just are fresh and riveting.
Good plot, excellent characters , fine writing and top narration.
Probably some of the best stories that have been written about this period and the men and women who are intertwined with one another in the post war secret services up to the present (well then it was). Highly recommended m!
