Len Deighton - XPD

SYNOPSIS

On the morning of ll th June 1940,Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of Great Britain, took off in a private aircraft from a small town in central France. His destination: a deserted airfield near the Belgian border. His mission: a clandestine meeting with the would-be conqueror of Europe, Adolf Hitler. For more than forty years what happened at that meeting has been Britain's most closely guarded secret. A secret still so dangerous to the security of the realm that anyone who learns of it must die - with their file stamped XPD: expedient demise. Set in the summer of 1979, Len Deighton's brilliant new masterwork of intrigue and suspense carries the reader, with a pace that never once flags, from the mansions of Beverly Hills to the back streets of King's Cross, from Lake Geneva to the Baltic Seas, until it reaches a characteristically ingenious and unexpected climax on a film set of the Fuhrer's study under the shadow of a Nazi eagle. Len Deighton is a master of cunning. No-one explores with greater ingenuity or such wry skill the world of double-dealing and conspiracy, of treachery and deceit. With its expert interweaving of fact and invention, its wheels-within-wheels of mystery and surprise, XPD is a supreme example of his craft.
