The fourth of Deighton's novels to be narrated by the unnamed employee of WOOC(P) is the thrilling story of an anti-communist espionage network owned by a Texan billionaire, General Midwinter, run from a vast computer complex known as the Brain. After having been recruited by Harvey Newbegin, the narrator travels from the bone-freezing winter of Helsinki, Riga, and Leningrad, to the stifling heat of Texas, and soon finds himself tangling with enemies on both sides of the Iron Curtain.

Cold War Masterpiece
If you could sum up Billion-Dollar Brain in three words, what would they be?
Classic, soviet, gripping
What was one of the most memorable moments of Billion-Dollar Brain?
Any times our hero talks to the Russian General is fantastic
What about James Lailey’s performance did you like?
Perfect. Loved the Michael Caine style voice of course, but all the characters are so well done. Brilliant.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It's not very emotional although there is a lot of loyalty in question
Any additional comments?
The best of the series for me. The locations and story is very very good. Love the characters in this one. Very well written as you would expect. And some good old fashioned Cold War spy craft. Loved this book.
