Billion-Dollar Brain




The final spy novel featuring the unnamed hero of The IPCRESS File series finds him up against a Texan billionaire with an all-powerful computer

Texan billionaire General Midwinter will stop at nothing to bring down the USSR - even if it puts the whole world at risk. The fourth and final novel featuring the cynical, insolent narrator of The IPCRESS File sees him sent from his shabby Soho office to bone-freezing Helsinki in order to penetrate Midwinter's vast anti-Communist network - and stop a deadly virus from wiping out the planet.

Praise for Billion-Dollar Brain

Dazzlingly intelligent and subtle.

Sunday Times

Worthy of Raymond Chandler... intelligent, inventive, constantly entertaining.

Sunday Telegraph

They don't, as they say, write them like this anymore. You will be entertained, informed, thrilled and dazzled. Long may he, and his creations, live on.

Jeremy Duns, The Guardian

A wonderful mixture of the exciting and the amusingly humdrum ... James Bond may be thinner, but so is his dialogue.

Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph

Len Deighton is the Flaubert of the contemporary thriller writers.

Michael Howard, Times Literary Supplement

Deighton is a fearless observer of the deceptive human world.

John Gray, New Statesman
