Publisher's Summary

The long-awaited reissue of the second part of the classic spy trilogy Hook, Line and Sinker, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world.

Berlin-Kreuzberg: winter 1987. Through these grey streets, many people are hunting for Bernard Samson - London's field agent. He is perhaps the only man who both sides would be equally pleased to be rid of. But for Bernard, the city of his childhood holds innumerable grim hiding places for a spy on the run.

On a personal level there is a wonderful new young woman in his life, but her love brings danger and guilt to a life already lacking stability. In this city of masks and secrets lurk many dangers - both seen and unseen - and only one thing is certain: sooner or later Bernard will have to face the music and find someone to trust with his life.

    "Cold War Spy story that tells its tales without"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This story represents wonderfully written set of Cold War spy tales without political ideology that otherwise would bore its readers to death. The authors superb gift for developing its characters while telling its readers what seems like simple and yet believable spy narrative is Highly recommend reading...an added bonus is the superb reading performance by Mr James :Lailey, who sounds convincingly as the voice of none other but that of Bernard Simpson ..Five Stars all the way.. Enjoy.


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

    an added bonus is the superb reading performance by Mr James :Lailey, who sounds convincingly as the voice of none other but that of Bernard Simpson ..Five Stars all the way.. Enjoy

    "Next wonder episode in the Bernard Samson saga"

    Actually number five in this great series. If you know the series then you know just how good they are. If you don't then I recommend that you start at the beginning - go and have a look at 'Game'.
    Worth the wait, you will arrive at this one soon enough

    "The series gets better"

    An already excellent series of books gets a little better with this latest instalment. The story unfolds nicely and the narration is excellent.
