‘Deighton’s best novel to date - sharp, witty and sour, like Raymond Chandler adapted to British gloom and the multiple betrayals of the private spy’
‘Sheer consistent rightness page after page after page’
‘Virtuoso top level performance’
‘A masterly performance, much the best thing Deighton has done since SS-GB’
