Summary
Spy and Espionage. The long-awaited reissue of the final part of the classic spy trilogy, HOOK, LINE and SINKER, when the Berlin Wall divided not just a city but a world. Bernard Samson is surrounded by puzzles and none more complex than Fiona, his wife and the mother of his children. But as a mystery, she is by no means alone. Can a man love two women at the same time? Can a man serve two masters? Tessa Kosinski, Bernard's socialite sister-in-law, is not the 'other woman'. She is as faithful to Bernard and Fiona as she is unfaithful to her doting husband. But she is vulnerable, and slowly she is drawn from the bright lights of London to the murkiest and bizarre corners of Berlin

Summary
Why did Bernard Samson's wife Fiona disappear into East Berlin, leaving him with two young children and a wrecked career as a spy? This, at last, is Fiona's story. We see how she was recruited by the KGB as a young Oxford student. We also see her rise through the hierarchy of the British intelligence system until she is their super spy for East Germany, her mission the dangerous dealings that will help bring down the Berlin Wall in 1989. Beautiful, brilliant Fiona is thus caught not only in the double world of two espionage systems but also in the growing realization that it is only through treachery and deceit of the ones she loves most that Fiona can serve her country
