Len Deighton comes up a lot in discussions about the best spy writing and during a recent Kindle purchasing binge I bought the Bernard Samson trilogy. I have to admit that I wasn't really aware of Deighton but became interested in his work due reading about John Le Carre and his writing and seeing his name mentioned as well. I have a very good knowledge of Berlin during the Cold War and I find that period of history very interesting. Although I have read a lot of non-fiction about the Cold War as a whole, this was my first delve in some fiction based during the time.

The story focuses around the character of Bernard Samson, a British spy who has become somewhat jaded with working for M16. It's obvious that he is starting to consider whether he wants to continue in this line of work and his wife is also making it clear that she thinks he should stop working in Berlin and take an office job. They have children, and his wife is also a high flier in the intelligence service so there are few reasons for him to continue in his current role. However, one of M16's best sources in Berlin, 'Brahms Four' wants to go to the west and this sends M16 into a bit of a panic. This is further exacerbated by the fact that he says he will only deal with Samson and no one else. This effectively forces Samson's hand as he owes Brahms Four as he saved Samson early on in his career.

It's a little tricky to say much more without spoiling the book for others so what I say will be brief and avoid any information which isn't in the synopsis. Along with the main crux of the story, it emerges that there is a leak in MI6 and Sansom must help Brahms Four while working out who the leak is. There are a number of possible candidates but I worked out who it was a while before the big reveal. The writing is pretty good and although I enjoyed the book, I didn't love it. I found the story a little slow going in places and wondered where we were heading. Despite this reservation I would not hesitate to read the next one in the trilogy and I intend to get to it soon.

Great fun. Deighton occasionally overdoes the noir sensibility. The tragic plot is predictable, and not exactly believable. But I still enjoyed the characters and the writing, and, especially, the Berlin setting. Lots of details I've never read elsewhere. I also liked the dialog, how Deighton always keeps a second minor action going on in the background, in continuity over several pages. Not enough authors do this. ( )

There are quite a number of gaps in the plot eg. why was Bernard sent to pick up Brahms Four at Charlie Checkpoint at the beginning of the plot, what is exactly Warren's role, the relationship between him, his wife and Frank, and most of all, how did Fiona become a Russian spy? It was briefly mentioned that Fiona was involved in Marxist activities when she was young, and she seemed to have wormed her way into working with Bernard. But the story of how she was recruited was not addressed at all. Because of all these gaps, I couldn't enjoy the book as much as I had hoped. ( )

Deighton is a John LeCarre wannabe but doesn't quite pull it off. He gives too many clues to the identity of the mole, it's far too easy to work it out. LeCarre would have had a few more plot twists and far more detail. Bernard isn't in the same league as Smiley, nor even half as interesting as a character. ( )
