Publisher's Summary

Bernard Samson returns to Berlin in the second novel in the classic spy trilogy, Faith, Hope and Charity.

Bernard is trying hard to readjust his life in the face of questions about his wife, Fiona, and her defection to the East. Is she the brilliant highflier that her department seems to think she is? Or is she a spent force, a wife and mother unwilling or unable to face her domestic responsibilities?

Bernard doesn't know but is determined to find out. Bernard's boss, Dicky Cruyer, is certainly not anxious to reveal what he knows, as he jostles for power with Fiona herself in London Central and takes to the road with Bernard on a mysterious mission to Poland.

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.

What the Critics Say

"As fresh and brisk as ever...a feast to be wallowed in." (Sunday Express)
"It speaks volumes for Deighton's skill as a storyteller that, years after the Berlin Wall came down, he can still set the nerve-ends jangling with a thriller set in the Cold War.... His sense of pace is extraordinary, as is his sense of mood." (Sunday Telegraph)

    Story
    "James Lailey is absolutely brilliant"
    Would you listen to Hope again? Why?

    This is a fantastic story, indeed the whole series is, but special credit should go to the narrator James Lailey, whose characterisations, pacing and general performance are completely fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The complexity and humour


    What about James Lailey’s performance did you like?

    Everything - he nails all the characters with distinctive voices which are all utterly believable and creates great pictures. (including the female parts!) A really talented narrator
