I Was Reading This Book....

The book thread disappeared when its owner left the site so  thought I'd start another. Haven't read any Len Deighton for a while so started again on his spy trilogy. First one is Berlin Game. Terrific, I like it better than John Le Carre.

"Absolutely joyous SR, a man after my own heart. Cheaney make great shoes ;-)
My tip would be polish one shade lighter, that way you're going to keep your original colour and develop  a beautiful patina as the leather ages ;-)"

    Short Story

    There she was just walking down the street and I could see that she wasn’t just carrying but that she was loaded and if I could see it, in her hunched shoulders and deep thrust pocketed hands, then so could anybody else who had an ounce of intelligence and two seconds of experience.
