4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely readable, highly entertaining., 20 Sept. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Hope (Faith, Hope & Charity Trilogy) (Paperback)
This book continues Deighton's style of introducing new sub-plots to advance the main long-running story with customary skill and flair. The story continues to reveal the many sought-after details of the "true" events of "Spy Line", in a manner which will satisfy the most demanding reader, but still leave them hungry for the final installment "Charity".
The dialogue is crisp and witty, the plot inpsired, and Deighton's skill for descriptive narrative and the scenes and images of bleak Eastern Europe he creates are rivalled only by Samson's long suffering tolerance of his superior as Dicky continues to amuse and frustrate in equal measure.
In all, an indispensable addition to the superb Bernard Samson stories, but best read as part of the whole series, as despite claims that each book can "stand alone", if read in this manner the overall impact of the story will be reduced and the attention to detail, which is part of these book's brilliance, will go unnoticed.
