Book Description

29 April 2010 Harper Books

Long-awaited reissue of the second part of the classic spy trilogy, GAME, SET and MATCH, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world.

A lot of people had plans for Bernard Samson…

When they spotted Erich Stinnes in Mexico City, it was obvious that Bernard Samson was the right man to ‘enrol’ him. With his domestic life a shambles and his career heading towards disaster, Bernard needed to prove his reliability. and he knew Stinnes already - Bernard had been interrogated by him in East Berlin.

But Bernard risks being entangled in a lethal web of old loyalties and old betrayals.

All he knows for sure is that he has to get Erich Stinnes for London.

Who’s pulling the strings is another matter…

Review

‘Deighton’s best… until the next’
Daily Mail

‘The poet of the spy story’
Sunday Times

‘A master of fictional espionage’
Daily Mail

‘Deighton is back in his original milieu, the bleak spy world of betrayers and betrayed’
Observer

‘Deighton is a marvel… few authors writing in the rigorous and finite genre of spy fiction have mastered the craft as well as Deighton… Mexico Set is a pure tale, told by an author at the height of his power’
Chicago Tribune

5.0 out of 5 stars Bernard Samson again 28 Feb 2011
By TheDoc
Format:Paperback
The second of the Game, Set and Match trilogy which introduced Deighton's substitute for the unsubstitutable Harry Palmer, Bernard Sampson. Most of the narrative takes place in Berlin rather than Mexico but nevertheless the novel finally gives the lie to the idea that spy fiction couldn't outlive the collapse of communism, the end of the cold war and the Berlin wall.
Most of the characters first appeared in Berlin Game, the first of the trilogy which really should be read first, and as in all good fiction they appear to live and breathe in the room with us. Intelligent hokum of the first order. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Len Deighton Mexico Set 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd never read any Len Deighton books until I accidentally downloaded one onto my kindle, 'Berlin Game'. I started it not really looking forward to it but reading it cos I'd paid for it! However, I loved it and couldn't wait to get the second book in the trilogy. Mexico Set was definitely up to expectation. I like the understated way in which it is told and the characters are so believable. I can't wait now to get the third book, London Match and look forward to another good read. If you are into spy fiction try these!

4.0 out of 5 stars All the usual twists and turns 17 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The tales are told simply in this series, but you are never quite sure where you stand as the story meanders along, sometimes curving gently one way and at others sharply veering the opposite way.

As you begin to understand the destination you know that you will eventually arrive there, but not from which direction. Such is the art of a good storyteller.

Yet another book whereby Len Deighton shows his purely skill at writing spy thrillers. Can't wait to delve into the final book in the series - 'London Match' - what do you have in store?

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked classic 11 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of ten books in the Berlin trilogies. Deighton's writing is exemplary, with wonderful descriptions. Totally believable characters in a world that only a handful of us will ever experience.
