Len Deighton - The Ipcress File

SYNOPSIS

The Ipcress File introduces an ingenious and idiosyncratic writer of great talent and promise. Len Deighton has written what would conventionally be called a spy story but The Ipcress File is spyworks with the I id off: for the main feature of modern spying is the double agent—or treble or quadruple for that matter-the master mind whose loyalty no one can claim with certainty; and this is the type of man Mr. Deighton introduces to us. The hero-narrator of this story— the first in a planned series—has, suitably enough, no name; neither, as he tends to tell his superiors, does he have the advantage of a classical education.
