Funeral in Berlin by Len Deighton, First Edition
It was the third of four novels about an unnamed British agent. The protagonist, who is unnamed, travels to Berlin to arrange the defection of a Soviet scientist named Semitsa, this being brokered by Johnny Vulkan of the Berlin intelligence community. The fake documentation for Semitsa needs to be precisely specified. The U. The Penguin edition had some dialogue deleted. The original passage: [quote] 'I personally have always been against it,' said Hallam. There are terrible accidents, hooligans take advantage of the occasion to throw fireworks into letter boxes and put them in milk bottles.
Funeral In Berlin by Len Deighton (1964)
This is a constant theme of Deighton's - the uncertainty of loyalty. Russian Colonel Stok seems anxious that the deal goes through and the plan is to use a mock funeral to cross the wall from East to West. But 'Harry' starts thinking: why does the fake documentation for Paul Louis Broum need to be so specific and why is Hallam at the Home Office pushing for the deal to be done? It is from these questions that a story, which could only be described as labyrinthine, develops and draws in the reader. What follows is a mix of plots and sub-plots, dead ends and multiple agencies from the UK, Russia, Germany, the USA and Israel all competing for the same prize - secret information. The reader is forced in every chapter to ask: who is playing off who against whom?
