    MR Forssyth is a Master of the Pen and most of his books are great reading and entertainment and he moves around in many different environments with his characters.I love this author.His Short stories like the Veteran are a gift to many of my friends and all appreciate his books a lot.He is my view amonst the TOP ten authors in his sphere. Much is probably very close to reality and reads like a REPORT. and not as authors immagination- Outstanding tale...

    Von Forsyth ist man gute Thriller gewohnt. Der Aufbau des Buches als Anhörung eines alten Agenten, der über vergangene Einsätze berichtet, dient hier leider nur als Hülle, um vier einigermaßen unterhaltsame Kurzgeschichten als Buch zu verkaufen.

    Ein Agentenroman wie er aus den besten Zeiten des Kalten Krieges stammen könnte. Und genau darum geht es auch in diesem Thriller. Forsyth erzählt die Geschichte von Sam McCready, dem modernen Geheimagenten, der so gar nichts mit James Bond gemeinsam hat, außer natürlich, daß auch er für HM Geheimdienst arbeitet. Spielt die erste Episode noch mitten im Kalten Krieg zwischen BRD und DDR, so handeln weitere Teile von der Annäherung der Russen an die Westeuropäer und der Bedrohung des Weltfriedens durch Terroristen.McCready ist vor allem durch seine unkonventionellen Methoden ein erfolgreicher undercover-Agent gewesen, doch die Tage dieser Art von Geheimdienst scheinen vorbei zu sein. Er muß sich vor einem Tribunal des MI-6 verantworten und sie von der Richtigkeit seiner Methoden überzeugen - denn sonst schmeißen Sie ihn raus. Doch es steht viel mehr auf dem SpeilForsyth zieht hier wirklich alle Register, das Buch ist eine Art James-Bond-Film in Buchform. Nur daß sich mit dem Buch viele Dinge, insbesondere die intelligenten story plots, besser darstellen lassen und auch viel besser kommen als in irgend so einem Film, in dem die story doch aufgrund des kleinsten gemeinsamen Nenners eher minimalistisch angelegt ist. (Dies ist eine Amazon.de an der Uni-Studentenrezension.)

    Forsyth has written some of the best spy-thrillers, in an universe filled with LeCarrés, Folletts, Deightons and so on. His earlier books, such as "The day of the Jackal" and "The Odessa file" are simply marvelous pieces of research and storytelling. This book, "The Deceiver", portraits what happens to a british spy when the Cold War is over: his superiors are trying to give him an early retirement, since he's no use in these peaceful days. Maybe Forsyth wrote the story ( I mean, the four stories ), thinking what was going to happen to HIM, and other writers alike, since their primary plot in the real world was shattered altogether with the Berlim Wall. And I guess Forsyth wasn't that much worried. The first story is the heaviest one, with a psychological side. As the book goes on, you get to know the hero, MacCready, not only as a spymaster, but mainly as a person, an individual. The last story is the best one, in a mood that resembles the Agatha Christie's Poirot's detective cases. Highly recommended to people who want to learn more about Forsyth himself.

    Started off as series of 4 made for TV Spy stories with not very obvious links between them. Forsyth changed the storylines slightly to fit them together. Originally it was an American agent who went into East Germany to get to his old contact and Mcready in the tv programmes originally came from a Catholic backgound in Belfast - added spice for the IRA gunrunning story. Overall not bad and the individual stories like his short story anthology - very good.

    Sam McCready's job is to engage foreign threats to her majesties realm, but this time the threat is within: an internal enquiry. When confronted with questioning through four courageous episodes of duty, a hidden agenda seems clear. Can insider politics out-match THE DECEIVER?

    Very good, typical of all Mr. Forsyth's yarns, which could be true, could be fiction. We'll never know, though will we?

    "The deciever" is the best. Three short stories compile the best of the deciever's career with British inteligence. The stories span the cold war and take the deciever all around the world. This book is to good to describe. A must read.
