by Len Deighton
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
Book Club Edition
1979. A stolen World War II document is about to surface -- galvanizing the most ruthless secret agents of Great Britain, America, Germany, and the Soviet Union into a desperate battle of wits and violence. Because this document, if made public, would reveal England's greatest, most closely guarded wartime secret: a clandestine meeting in June 1940 between Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler to discuss the possibility of England's surrender. Fot almost forty years, this secret has been considered so dangerous to the security of the realm that anyone who learns of it must die, his file stamped XPD: Expedient Demise . . . .
Len Deighton's new masterpiece of intrigue rushes from Beverly Hills to London, from Lake Geneva to the Baltic Sea, until -- the suspense mounting -- it reaches an ingenious and unexpected climax on a movie set of the Fuhrer's study under the shadow of the Nazi eagle.
No one explores with greater skill than Deighton the world of international double-dealing and conspiracy, of treachery and deceit. With its expert interweaving of fact and invention, its wheals-within-wheels of mystery and violence, XPD is a superb example of his craft -- a brilliant successor to Deighton's great best sellers The Ipcress File, Funeral in Berlin, and SS-GB.
