Four classic spy novels, four unnamed spies - just like Britain’s uber-cool sixties spy, ‘Harry Palmer’ - together in one e-bundle for the first time. When Len Deighton wrote THE IPCRESS FILE, he not only reinvented spy fiction, he created a style icon and literary legend: ‘Harry Palmer’. The nameless, working-class spy of the books found fame in three films starring Michael Caine, and the smart-talking, anti-establishment spy was suddenly cool. Hollywood would create a host of similarly super-slick spies, such as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin in The Man from Uncle. But ‘ Harry Palmer’ remains the best, and this quartet showcases the international exploits of someone who looks, sounds and acts like Harry. AN EXPENSIVE PLACE TO DIE – Into the twilight world of Parisian decadence and hidden motives come the agents of four world powers. SPY STORY – An attempted murder, the defection of a senior KGB official, and an explosive nuclear submarine chase beneath the Arctic Ocean are the sparks that ignite a brutal East-West power play. YESTERDAY’S SPY – They thought that Steve Champion, flamboyant hero and leader of an anti-Nazi intelligence group was gone. Then rumours surface of Champion’s sinister Arab connections and weapons-smuggling, forcing his old friend to investigate. TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE SPY – A Soviet space scientist defector, an English spy and an ex-CIA agent leave a blood-soaked killing trail across three continents, while overhead spy satellites watch all, twinkling like stars.
