Len Deighton - Billion Dollar Brain

SYNOPSIS

The man with the Billion-Dollar Brain is a Texan multi-millionaire. He has poured his fortune into a fanatical anti-Communist crusade. His Brain is the master mind of a vast, independent espionage network—a giant computer complex ticking out instructions to cerebral mercenaries throughout the world. One of these is Harvey Newbegin, neurotic, opportunist ex-employee of the U.S. State Department. Another is blonde Signe Laine, a Finnish Lolita with a weakness for champagne and expensive shoes. Into this ruthless organisation comes the tough, insubordinate spy from Burnley who fought, fumbled and schemed his way through The Ipcress File, Horse Under Water and Funeral in Berlin. Setting out on what seems Iike a routine mission, he soon finds himself tangling with enemies on both sides of the Iron Curtain. The plot screams across the roof of the world like an inter-continental missile: from the bone-freezing core of winter in Helsinki, Riga and Leningrad, to the stifling heat of Texas and a final showdown with the absurd megalomaniac. General Midwinter, in New York. This would be a riveting space-age thriller if it weren't for the creepy feeling that it all really happened
