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)
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!
