Waterstones Says

Deighton’s first outing for world-weary agent Bernard Samson broke new ground for the espionage novel, with its wry, mordant and resolutely unglamorous glance at the security services. Proving that British Intelligence is as rife with internal politics as external, Berlin Game spins a story of disillusion and betrayal that rings irresistibly true to this day.

Long-awaited reissue of the first part of the classic spy trilogy, GAME, SET and MATCH, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world.

East is East and West is West - and they meet in Berlin...

He was the best source the Department ever had, but now he desperately wanted to come over the Wall. `Brahms Four' was certain a high-ranking mole was set to betray him. There was only one Englishman he trusted any more: someone from the old days.

The field is Berlin.

The game is as baffling, treacherous and lethal as ever...

'Sheer consistent rightness page after page after page.' -
The Times

'Virtuoso top level performance.' - Guardian

'A masterly performance, much the best thing Deighton has done since SS-GB.' - Sunday Times
