CHARITY by Len Deighton
Released: Dec. 18, 1996

"Even so, almost 18 months remain on Deighton's narrative calendar before the Berlin Wall comes down, suggesting to optimists that the author has world enough and time for more trilogies. ($100,000 ad promo)"
The final volume in the third of Deighton's Cold War trilogies to feature Bernard Samson, the star-crossed British intelligence agent who has yet to wear out his welcome. Read full book review >

FAITH by Len Deighton
Released: Jan. 4, 1995

A warmed-over Bernard Samson (Spy Sinker, 1990, etc.) thriller that is sorely lacking violence, action, sex, bad guys, espionage, and high technology. Read full book review >
Released: Nov. 30, 1993

"At best, then, a serviceable synthesis. (Photographs, line drawings, and maps)"

VIOLENT WARD by Len Deighton
Released: July 28, 1993

"Like sugarcoating on a pill, Mickey's lively patter makes the contorted, lumpy storyline easier to swallow—but this kind of bumptious California thriller really isn't Deighton's bag. (First printing of 125,000)"
What's a veteran cold war novelist to do when there's no more cold war? Read full book review >
CITY OF GOLD by Len Deighton
Released: July 1, 1992

"Play it again, Len."
Abandoning present-day intrigues (MAMista, Spy Sinker, etc.), Deighton journeys back to WW II (SS-GB and XPD)—and a terrific return it is: a rich drama of heroes and villains awaiting German General Erwin Rommel's attack on Cairo—the ``city of gold.'' The plots here are many, but central among them is the attempt by Special Investigation Branch Major Bert Cutler to unmask the spy who's been leaking British secrets to Rommel.

MAMISTA by Len Deighton
Released: Aug. 1, 1991

"The spirits of Graham Greene and Joseph Conrad hover over this stately, outstanding mix of tragedy and black farce that builds slowly—but inexorably—to its piercing conclusion."
Deighton's longest, most complex and passionate novel in years: an epic tale, set in a South American jungle, of good men and women crushed beneath the heel of Realpolitik. Read full book review >
