About the Author:

Born in London, Len Deighton served in the RAF before graduating from the Royal College of Art (which recently elected him a Senior Fellow). While in New York City working as a magazine illustrator he began writing his first novel, The Ipcress File, which was published in 1962. He is now the author of more than thirty books of fiction and non-fiction. At present living in Europe, he has, over the years, lived with his family in ten different countries from Austria to Portugal.

Review:

`The master at his peak' Daily Telegraph `Classic, world-ranging, marvellously knowledgeable ... in a word, quality' The Times `The action is riveting, the dialogue crackles with sardonic wit' Publishers Weekly `Even the most jaded palate will be ravished' Sunday Telegraph
