Book Description

18 Sep 1995 Faith, Hope & Charity Trilogy
First in a trilogy of novels featuring put-upon hero Bernard Samson. In this post-Cold War thriller, Deighton gives his, and Samson's, account of how the Wall fell and the West won. It has plot and counter-plot, descriptions and sly wit, and it is about international and inter-personal politics.

Review

‘A string of brilliantly mounted set-pieces… superbly laconic wisecracks’ The Times

‘Like lying back in a hot bath with a large malt whisky – absolute bliss… superbly combines violent action with a strong emotional undertow. The plotting in Faith is masterly, the atmospheric descriptions superb…’ Sunday Telegraph

From the Back Cover

Bernard Samson has known that he is not getting the full picture from London Central ever since discovering that his wife Fiona was a double agent.

Werner Volkmann has been cast out by London Central as untrustworthy. Yet Werner still seems able to pick up information that Bernard should have been told.

THE TIMES

"Like lying back in a hot bath with a large malt whisky – absolute bliss…superbly combines violent action with strong emotional undertow. The plotting in 'Faith' is masterly, the atmospheric descriptions superb…It is going to be agony waiting for the next volume in the trilogy"
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 17 Jan 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
I rate this much higher than the previous reviewer. I found this a really exciting and interesting entry in the series. I would say it had more thriller elements and more action than some of the previous books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Deighton delivers 15 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Seven books in to a nine-book sequence (10, if you count Winter), Deighton sustains your interest with more twists and one or two further startling revelations. Perhaps the series is a little tired by now, but the authentic feel marks him out above most of his contemporaries - he and le Carré stand alone in the genre - and his gift for deft characterisation is still well in evidence. Even average Deighton is better than most other espionage fare.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new chapter 19 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This novel starts the final trilogy of the Samson (both senior and junior) canon.

Good to see how some familiar characters develop as time passes.
