Spy Sinker




A new narrator provides some long-awaited answers to the Bernard Samson mystery in the final novel of the Hook, Line and Sinker trilogy

Of all the mysteries Bernard Samson has encountered, the greatest is his wife Fiona. Dedicated agent of the Service and a woman of secrets, she will risk everything to play the long game. As the truth about the decision that shattered their marriage is gradually revealed, the web of deception that has snared Bernard for ten years begins to unravel. In the gripping, tragic finale of the Hook, Line and Sinker trilogy, everything we thought we knew is brought into question.

Praise for Spy Sinker

All done with the chilling competence we expect from Mr Deighton ... No padding, no slowing of pace, and the writing is crisp and brutal.

Daily Telegraph

Dazzling ingenuity and cleverness.

The Independent

The poet of the spy story.

Sunday Times

Deighton's outstanding achievement is the nine-volume series chronicling the life and times of Bernard Samson ... Deighton's Samson trilogies are as much about the elusiveness of human interactions as espionage. Spying is not a secret world sealed off from ordinary life but an extension of the world we all live in.

John Gray, New Statesman
