Funeral in Berlin by Len Deighton

A ferociously cool Cold War thriller from the author of The Ipcress File.Len Deighton’s third novel has become a classic, as compelling and suspenseful now as when it first exploded on to the bestseller lists.In Berlin, where neither side of the wall is safe, Colonel Stok of Red Army Security is prepared to sell an important Russian scientist to the West – for a price. British intelligence are willing to pay, providing their own top secret agent is in Berlin to act as go-between. But it soon becomes apparent that behind the facade of an elaborate mock funeral lies a game of deadly manoeuvres and ruthless tactics. A game in which the blood-stained legacy of Nazi Germany is enmeshed in the intricate moves of cold war espionage…

Funeral in Berlin is a good suspense novel. Author Len Deighton is one of the best. I would read his other books.

Enjoyable, and often quite funny, thriller, marred by a wholly implausible final action scene.

One of the most complex plots of any book I've read, but hugely enjoyable.

Funeral In Berlin just may be Len Deighton's all time best espionage novel. Unless you are over 60 years old, the language and terminology may seem arcane, but the plot still packs a punch. The nameless WOOC(P) agent and an international cast of spies wander through an amoral Cold War landscape, ostensibly to smuggle a Russian scientist across the Wall. Of course, since this is a Deighton thriller, nothing is quite as it seems and no one can be taken at face value, not even the narrator. There are critics who praise his later Bernard Samson trilogies, but I feel his 60s stuff is his best.
