Deighton is great fun. Just the thing for a hot summer. An ennealogy being the name for a series of nine novels, despite there being a tenth novel - Winter: A Berlin Family, - which is a prequel to the series. After the wonderful opening trilogy, Spy Hook takes the story to the next level. Bernard Samson appears to have revealed yet more betrayal, duplicity and deceit in London Central. Despite being warned off on numerous occasions Bernard just will not let it lie.
His tentative conclusions are certainly plausible. Deighton claims these books can be read as stand alone thrillers but I am not convinced. This series only really works as part of an ongoing saga and each book reveals new surprising twists and revelations. But things have not gone well for Samson: old pals are not as friendly as they used to be and colleagues are less confiding than they once were. Now, starting with his mission to Washington, life has become even more precarious for Bernard.
Ignoring all warnings, friendly, devious and otherwise, he pursues his own investigation and, in California, meets with the biggest surprise of his life… Action bounces between London, both East and West Berlin, France, California, and DC and Samson leverages his relationships in his attempt to fulfill his assignment, but absolutely nothing is simple here. Many questions are introduced from all sorts of directions and, in the end, the riddle is somewhat solved but Samson finds himself on the run.
