‘A spy story with a difference.’ Observer
‘A master of fictional espionage.’ Daily Mail
‘The poet of the spy story.’ Sunday Times
‘The Ipcress File helped change the shape of the espionage thriller...the prose is still as crisp and fresh as ever...there is an infectious energy about this book which makes it a joy to read, or re-read.’ Daily Telegraph
‘The self-conscious cool of Deighton’s writing has dated in the best way possible...a stone-cold cold war classic.’ Guardian
‘Deighton is so far in the front of other writers in the field that they are not even in sight’ Sunday Times
‘Nobody now seriously doubts that Deighton is the most credible of all the spysmiths’ The Scotsman
‘Regarded as the cold war spy thriller that made all subsequent examples of the genre possible...however much of a classic the film is, the book is a completely different proposition. It’s more intricate and far superior...a must for anyone who likes this kind of fiction.’ Loaded
