January 1942. Rommel's seemingly invincible Afrika Korps is at the gates of Egypt - perhaps soon to threaten Cairo itself. And Rommel has a spy in the city - a source so well-informed that the German commander kws in advance every movement of the allied forces. Amongst the teeming streets and bazaars, the British, led by Major Albert Cutler, must find him. But Cairo is a city of fool's gold, where thing and body, t even Cutler, can be taken at face value...This new reissue includes a foreword from the cover designer, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arld Schwartzman, and a brand new introduction by Len Deighton, which offers a fascinating insight into the writing of the story.
Born in London, Len Deighton served in the RAF before graduating from the Royal College of Art (which recently elected him a Senior Fellow). While in New York City working as a magazine illustrator he began writing his first novel, The Ipcress File, which was published in 1962. He is now the author of more than thirty books of fiction and non-fiction. At present living in Europe, he has, over the years, lived with his family in ten different countries from Austria to Portugal.
