Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Bernard Samson is a spy on the run. But in the murky streets of Berlin, he knows where to hide. Wanted for an act of treachery he has not committed, he must not only escape the grasp of London Central but get to the bottom of a tangled conspiracy that is about to change everything. In the thrilling penultimate instalment of the Hook, Line and Sinker trilogy, Bernard's personal and professional life collide with devastating consequences.

Ludicrous

The plot is ludicrous (James Bond film are more believable). The style is much the same as ever, if somewhat more long winded.
Well, this time l got one and a half books further than last time, might try again in another 20 years, then again, life's too short
