Another Len Deighton novel that I read until the book developed 'dog-ears'...now on my Kindle and what a wonderful re-read I have had.
Once again the hero narrates the storyline...once agin in the book he has no name...
This is a wonderful book, I enjoyed it the first time around and i must have read it now more times than I have fingers and toes, could have needed to be 'Jake the Peg'.
From seeing the film of the same name and seeing and hearing the voices of the actors playing the characters, it's no doubt that Sir Michael Caine was perfect for the role that became Harry Palmer in the films, whilst reading I hear his voice everytime the narrator retorts to someone and I know that Len deighton originally had no one in mind as the person to be the main character and allows you to feel that the book is being narrated by Len Deighton himself. Now not many people know that!
