What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Bernard Samson returns to Berlin in the first novel in the classic spy trilogy, FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY.

Bernard has known that he is not getting the full picture from London Central ever since discovering that his wife Fiona was a double agent.

Werner Volkmann has been cast out by London Central as untrustworthy. Yet Werner still seems able to pick up information that Bernard should have been told…

Critics Review

  • Like lying back in a hot bath with a large malt whisky – absolute bliss … The plotting in Faith is masterly, the atmospheric descriptions superb.

    Sunday Telegraph
  • A string of brilliantly mounted set-pieces … superbly laconic wisecracks.

    The 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.

    New Statesman
  • The self-conscious cool of Deighton’s writing has dated in the best way possible; bear in mind that the man was almost single-handedly responsible for brinfging coffee culture to the British Isles. Stone-cold Cold War classic.
