The long-awaited reissue of the final part of the classic spy trilogy Hook, Line and Sinker, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world.
Bernard Samson is surrounded by puzzles and none more complex than Fiona, his wife and the mother of his children. But as a mystery, she is by no means alone. Can a man love two women at the same time? Can a man serve two masters?
Tessa Kosinski, Bernard's socialite sister-in-law, is not the 'other woman'. She is as faithful to Bernard and Fiona as she is unfaithful to her doting husband. But she is vulnerable, and slowly she is drawn from the bright lights of London to the murkiest and most bizarre corners of Berlin.

"All done with the chilling competence we expect from Mr Deighton.... No padding, no slowing of pace, and writing is crisp and brutal." (Daily Telegraph)
"Dazzling ingenuity and cleverness." (Independent)
"A remarkable feat." (Sunday Express)
Living in rural tranquility in France. I read everything except readers' l o n g reviews of books.
Bernard takes a back seat in this one and we follow the story for others points of view - Bret and Fiona take center stage. Covering all the bits and details from the first 'Game' to five 'Line' we get motives and explanations adding insights.
I'm not convinced that this would stand alone without having read the earlier works but it may stand as a good introduction to the next three in the saga
As ever, great writing with super narration
"A great listen"
Fantastic series couldn't stop listening hoping audible will have the rest of the trilogy soon.
