9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Chris Chalk on 19 Feb 2001
Format: Paperback
Having started the Sampson trilogy with the book `Winter` I have managed to build a profile of a plethora of characters associated with the series. The detail is stunning and the architecture of the writing sublime. The concluding story twists....yet again!! but this time give the reader a real sense of direction and in depth feeling for the characters. Maybe the story offers more questions than answers and leaves you screaming for more, but Deighton masterfully leaves it to the reader's imagination and any reader with said imagination will realise the subtlety involved and appreciate the ending for what it is, Masterful. This story reflects life in that there are no absolutes, especially not in Bernard's life but Deighton makes you live the story and you wont be disappointed with his spin on Bernard's life.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 May 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bernard Samson is one of my favorite espionage characters. I was delighted by this excellent completion of the Faith, Hope and Charity trilogy.
The hard part about Deighton's trilogies is that they leave the reader hanging between books, dying for the next one. Charity does not resolve everything, but it certainly takes care of a lot of the dangling questions.
The plot complications invite paranoia. It seems like nothing is ever what it appears to be. The only constant is that Bernard continues to play the role of the unwitting dupe in others' ploys. Since he is a good and thoughtful person, that quality pulls us away from having sympathy for the spymasters who dream up the plans to go awry so often. It raises the rather nice question of how far the means can and should go to justify the end.
Will we ever have enough of the Cold War and its espionage? Perhaps not. If so, we are fortunate that Len Deighton has written this book.
If you have not read the earlier Bernard Samson novels, I strongly urge you to begin at the beginning with Winter. You'll have two advantages that way: You will appreciate the plot development better, having known of the prior complications; and you won't have to wait for the next book to come out. If you follow this advice, I envy you. You have a lot of fun reading ahead!

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By matthias_huehn@hotmail.com on 10 May 2000
Format: Paperback
Being a German who has lived a long time in Scotland I am amazed how much I can learn about Germany from Len Deighton. Deighton is able to analyse the German psyche with stunning accuracy. Apart from that remarkable fact, Len Deighton`s books, especially his Bernhard Samson series, are the wittiest spy novels I have ever read. The characters are three-dimensional and the plot(s) brilliant. They are page-turners which I have read at least three times each.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 5 May 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is the conclusion of the Samson saga, and it has all the twists and turns that the first 8 books in this remarkable series have. When I began reading this series, starting with the first trilogy Game, Set and Match, I couldn't put them down, and no matter how many times I read them, I will never grow tired of them. To anyone who has read the books before this one, I have one thing to say. "Whatever you think you know about past events of this saga, until you read Charity, you know nothing."

The final chapter in the series wraps things up nicely, without detracting from the specific storyline of this particular novel.
