Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘Immense skill… a stylish and stimulating performance’ The Times‘The richness, the sardonic humour, the wheeling and dealing world of the films with its parties, its highly coloured characters… The power of the book is undoubted’ The Standard‘The film industrry is in many ways the ideal subject for Mr Deighton’s talents’ Times Literary Supplement‘Deighton’s greatest novel, and I haven’t forgotten his epic Bomber. If Deighton never puts pen to paper again, his place is secure among the world’s top ten modern novelists.’ Whitefriar
