It says something of how Len Deighton understands the genre that he chose “Spy Story” to carry such a title. This novel is more downbeat and lacking in smart humour than those that have come to be called the Harry Palmer novels, and it is less formulaic than the Bernard Samson novels. In some respects, “Spy Story” is more downbeat, even, than John Le Carre’s “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold”, not because the story lacks drama but because it is often difficult to know what is going on. Accordingly, a vague unease pervades the book, whether the scene is an isolated Scottish submarine base, the War Studies Centre in London, where simulated war-games run in parallel to a Cold War crisis or a London flat with a mirror set of rooms and someone who resembles the central character and narrator, Patrick Armstrong.
