    Epic prelude to the classic spy trilogy Game, Set and Match that follows the fortunes of a German dynasty during two world wars. Winter takes us into a large and complex family drama, into the lives of two German brothers - both born close upon the turn of the century, both so caught up in the currents of history that their story is one with the story of their country, from the Kaiser's heyday through Hitler's rise and fall.

    Long-awaited reissue of the first part of the classic spy trilogy, Game, Set, and Match, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world. East is East and West is West - and they meet in Berlin. He was the best source the Department ever had, but now he desperately wanted to come over the Wall. ‘Brahms Four' was certain a high-ranking mole was set to betray him. There was only one Englishman he trusted any more: someone from the old days.

    The first book in a brilliant Cold War spy series

    Yes, given the masterful narration that captures the nuances of British class differences and the German of the Berlin characters.

    Long-awaited reissue of the final part of the classic spy trilogy GAME, SET and MATCH when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world. The spy who's in the clear doesn't exist... Bernard Samson hoped they'd put Elvira Miller behind bars. She said she had been stupid, but it didn't cut any ice with Bernard. She was a KGB-trained agent and stupidity was no excuse. There was one troubling thing about Mrs Miller's confession - something about two codewords where there should have been one.

    The long-awaited reissue of the first part of the classic spy trilogy, Hook, Line and Sinker, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world. Working for the Department was like marriage is supposed to be--"'til death do us part"--but the Department is really not like that, and neither are many marriages, including that of Bernard Samson. The cool and cynical field agent of the Game, Set and Match trilogy has grown older and wiser.

    God story at times too drawn out
