Description
Len Deighton's gripping cold war thriller became a popular icon of British cinema.
Mike Walker's dramatisation re-discovers the novel and its unnamed and defiantly non-establishment narrator as his new job in the intelligence service ensnares him in a plot to brainwash scientists and trade them across the iron curtain.
