For Bernard Samson, the end is near.

In the concluding volume of Len Deighton's superb trilogy that began with Faith and Hope, Bernard Samson continues to peel away the mystery surrounding the cold-blooded murder of his sister-in-law, Tessa, on the streets of Berlin. Although his wife, Fiona, has come back from the cold and is now in the West, his family is in tatters, and Samson has no where to turn for answers. Only his childhood friend Werner Volkman seems to offer the charity that Samson craves, but Volkmann is reluctant to get involved with any quest for the truth, no matter who is doing the asking. And as always, hovering above all Samson does and tries to be is the persistent memory of his father -- a deadly force to be reckoned with, even now.

Deighton's back and better than ever. Packed with action, incident and intrigue, Charity brings to a triumphant conclusion a series of 10 novels that represents one of the greatest achievements in modern fiction.

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.
