This is the first spy novel I've read in awhile and I very much enjoyed this one.

From the back of the book: The stage is set. Now, on the shadowy East-West battlefield of Mexico City, British Intelligence agent Bernard Samson must entice his opposite number, a disaffected KGB major, to take the final, dramatic step--and defect.

But the price of one Russian's freedom must be paid in blood--blood that Samson unexpectedly and incriminatingly finds on his own hands. On every side, he becomes dangerously enmeshed in an intricate web of suspicision and hatred. Yet how can he fight when he doesn't know where to find his most determined enemies--or even who they are?

I especially liked the variety of personalities of the characters and the foreign settings used in the book. Anyone who enjoys mysteries will most likely enjoy this book.

Game, Set, Match find Bernard Samson in espinoge intrigue and so many twists and turns you might want to read all three in succession to keep track of the players. A great read, I recently reread the set. Was a PBS series.
