Hope




Bernard Samson gets caught up in the messy unravelling of the USSR in the second novel of the Faith, Hope, Charity trilogy

Bernard Samson returns to Berlin in the second novel in the classic spy trilogy, FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY.

Bernard is trying hard to readjust his life in the face of questions about his wife Fiona, and her defection to the East. Is she the brilliant high-flyer that her Department seems to think she is? Or is she a spent force, a wife and mother unwilling or unable to face her domestic responsibilities? Bernard doesn't know but is determined to find out.

Bernard's boos Dicky Cruyer is certainly not anxious to reveal what he knows, as he jostles for power with Fiona herself in London Central, and takes to the road with Bernard on a mysterious mission to Poland.

As fresh and brisk as ever ... a feast to be wallowed in.

Sunday Express

For sheer readability he has no peer.

Evening Standard

Like lying back in a hot bath with a large malt whisky - absolute bliss.

Sunday Telegraph

Deighton's outstanding achievement is the nine-volume series chronicling the life and times of Bernard Samson ... Deighton's Samson trilogies are as much about the elusiveness of human interactions as espionage. Spying is not a secret world sealed off from ordinary life but an extension of the world we all live in.

John Gray, New Statesman
