Deighton's enigmatic British agent, Bernard Samson, returns in the conclusion to the bestselling trilogy that began in Faith and Hope. Beginning with a train ride from Moscow to Berlin, and ending at a dinner party that goes stunningly awry, Samson burrows to the rot that's eating at the core of the British Secret Service. The final revelation delivers the breathtaking punch that Samson fans have been awaiting for the last two years.

I finished Charity, last of the 9 books in the three trilogies about Bernard Sampson. While the grand finale is nice for Bernard, I have a big question about the plot. The British SIS went to a lot of trouble to try to fool East German security into believing that a dead female is that of Fiona when she was extracted from East Germany. And yet, after she came back to England from California, she had resumed working for the British SIS and travelled widely to continental Europe. Since she did not undergo any plastic surgery to disguise her appearance, wouldn't the East German security kill her off?

I was disappointed with the ending - it seemed to end suddenly and didn't seem to fit with the lead-up.
