Summary
On his way home, the unsuspecting ex-spy's car breaks down close to his old flat, and he breaks in to telephone for help. He is shocked to discover himself duplicated there: the same clothes, china, record collection and, spookiest of all, even the same photographs. Very much against his will, Deighton's hero is propelled into a brutal, devious conspiracy of East/West power politics. Soon embedded in its coils are the Red Admiral commanding Soviet antisubmarine warfare, a wealthy English eccentric, and a drunken member of Parliament who may be working for the British Secret Service. "Spy story" is vintage Len Deighton, a plot with stunning counterfeits and unfailing suspense right to its final devastating nightmarish climax
