TREMOR OF INTENT - Anthony Burgess
The genius known as Anthony Burgess turns his hand to a spy thriller and what great fun.
Denis Hillier went to get a defecting scientist back from Russia. He didn't realise he wasn't supposed to come back himself"
Burgess has a great crack at Le Carre, Fleming and Nabokov as well as writing a story with a decent plot. Its funny, tense and a wee bit disturbing with some of our hero's behaviour but worth finding and reading.
The books of Burgess's I can read, and that not all of them ,I love, this goes very close to the re-read category. Great stuff
