Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only.
From the cover: “Berlin-Kreuzberg: winter 1987. Through the grey streets, the British Military Police are hunting for Bernard Samson. But Berlin, beloved city of Bernard’s childhood, holds innumerable hiding places for a spy on the run. From a seedy nightclub on Potsdamerstrasse to an SIS safe house in Charlottenberg, from a Ku-Damm hotel to derelict apartment blocks patched up to house shops for bean sprouts and broken bicycles. This is a stunning achievement on every level, from the breathtaking cat’s cradle of a plot to the ever-deepening layers of emotion, pathos and passion revealed through characterisation, and the almost painful depiction of the dangerous shadow world in which this great tragic saga is being played out.”
