Summary

Long-awaited reissue of the second part of the classic spy trilogy, Game, Set and Match, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world.
A lot of people had plans for Bernard Samson.… When they spotted Erich Stinnes in Mexico City, it was obvious that Bernard Samson was the right man to 'enrol' him. With his domestic life a shambles and his career heading towards disaster, Bernard needed to prove his reliability. and he knew Stinnes already - Bernard had been interrogated by him in East Berlin. But Bernard risks being entangled in a lethal web of old loyalties and old betrayals.
All he knows for sure is that he has to get Erich Stinnes for London. Who's pulling the strings is another matter…

Critic reviews

“Deighton's best… until the next” ( Daily Mail)
“The poet of the spy story” ( Sunday Times)
“A master of fictional espionage” ( Daily Mail)
“Deighton is back in his original milieu, the bleak spy world of betrayers and betrayed” ( Observer)
“Deighton is a marvel… few authors writing in the rigorous and finite genre of spy fiction have mastered the craft as well as Deighton… Mexico Set is a pure tale, told by an author at the height of his power” ( Chicago Tribune)

Where are the rest !?!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you loved Berlin Game, then Mexico Set is an easy purchase and justifiably so!

What did you like best about this story?

It twists and turns like an eel in a bucket of baby lotion!...Bernard is on the back foot for a good part of the story, which is unusual for such a cool guy.

Have you listened to any of James Lailey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Lailey gives another great performance, he has Samson down perfectly. I'm not 100% sure about the jamican accent, but hey!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are a number of moments that made me laugh out loud (which is embarasing in the quiet coach of a train!)

Any additional comments?

More! More! More! Can audible please hurry up and release the final part, as well as Hook,Line and Sinker and Faith,Hope and Charity.
