Read in June, 2011

A Cold War espionage favorite. On re-reading this after almost 15 years, still read fresh enough. Bernie Samson is close enough to LeCarré's Smiley, albeit with more of a field man approach, to be up there among the best characters in cold-war lit. Berlin comes to life like it rarely has in other genre novels. And the twists and truns are well built, with a lot left to be unravelled in the future instalments. The end is a cold-war classic finale, well executed by one of the genre's masters at his best.
