Len Deighton - City of Gold (2nd Hand Paperback)
Master storyteller and internationally bestselling author Len Deighton takes readers once again to an exotic realm of danger and espionage. City of Gold is a harrowing tale of adventure and high-voltage suspense set in Egypt amid the turmoil of World War II.
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 knows 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 nothing and nobody, not even Cutler, can be taken at face value.
This reissue includes a foreword from the cover designer, Oscar-winning filmmaker Arnold Schwartzman, and a brand new introduction by Len Deighton, which offers a fascinating insight into the writing of the story.
