In true Frederick Forsyth style, The Deceiver has succeeded once again in not only entertaining but also educating the reader. I bought this book after reading that after this novel was published, the British government was forced to admit that they have used some of the techniques used in the book.
This book (along with The Fist of God) takes one about as close as possible to the world of espionage and how spying really works. Before you read this, forget 007 running around with a machine gun gunning down all the bad guys. Approach with an open mind and the reader will be immersed in the world of lies and deceit, all for Queen and country. The Price of the Bride was particularly good. Highly recommended!
