Then We Take Berlin (Joe Wilderness series)
John Holderness, known to the women in his life as 'Wilderness', comes of age during World War II in Stepney, East London, breaking in to houses with his grandfather.
After the war, Wilderness is recruited as MI5's resident 'cat burglar' and finds himself in Berlin, involved with schemes in the booming black market that put both him and his relationships in danger.
In 1963 it is a most unusual and lucrative request that persuades Wilderness to return - to smuggle someone under the Berlin Wall and out of East Germany. But this final scheme may prove to be one challenge too far...
Then We Take Berlin is a gripping, meticulously researched and richly detailed historical thriller - a moving story of espionage and war, and people caught up in the most tumultuous events of the twentieth century.
A stylish spy thriller. --The New York TimesLawton's gift for atmosphere, memorable characters and intelligent plotting has been compared to John le Carré, but his dry humor also invokes the late Ross Thomas. Thomas wrote smart espionage that was serious but never, so to speak, without a twinkle in its eye. Never mind the comparisons - Lawton can stand up on his own, and Then We Take Berlin is a gem. --Seattle TimesA superbly well-built Cold War cocktail-bracing, deliriously delicious, but carrying the slightly bitteraftertaste of dreams gone bad. --BooklistJohn Lawton finds himself in the same boat as the late Patrick O'Brian - a sublimely elegant historical novelist as addictive as crack but overlooked by too many readers for too long. --Daily Telegraph on A Lily of the FieldAdmirable, ambitious and haunting, this is the sort of thriller that defies categorisation. I look forward with enthusiasm to the next one. --Spectator on A Lily of the FieldJohn Lawton's books contain such a wealth of period detail, character description and background information that they are lifted out of any category. Every word is enriched by the author's sophistication and irreverent intelligence, by his meticulous research and his wit. --Literary Review on A Lily of the Field
