Meet the Author

Bestselling British author Len Deighton is known for his complex, nuanced espionage thrillers, beginning with his very first novel, The Ipcress File. Along with his contemporary, John le Carré, who also started his career in the early 1960s, Len Deighton transformed the spy novel by writing about the ways in which espionage can not only change the course of history, but how it can affect the morality and personal lives of the individuals involved.

    Highly Recommended

    Mexico Set is the second of the 1st three books of the three Trilogies written by Len Deighton. This book can be read without having read Berlin Game, however having read the first book you have already met most of the character's. The author introduces some new ones and expands on ones we met at the very end of the first. A complicated, story line which encompasses most of the main characters becomes more complex. (I will not elaborate thus possibly ruining the main plot). For readers who love the espionage of the Cold War and the workings of the English secret SIS will not be disappointed at all. For me I bought all three in the series (I had read all 9 books when first published) and am awaiting the next 3. This series is a wonderful addition to a book club that is geared toward the Cold War, as it follows the same characters throughout all books. I have read 6 other books by this author. Do you think I enjoy his writing?
