The Fallen Angel Gabriel Allon, The Four Adventures of Richard Hannay: The Innocent Will Robie, 1. Ashenden rebukes his uncouth controller, "In my youth I was always taught that you should take a woman by the waist and a bottle by the neck". A horror to be understood fully only by an Irish mind". The book reminds us that espionage is not limited to international intrigue. An unintelligent man, he is pitilessly hunted down by the intellectual Commandant Dan Gallagher.
The Informer occupies a position of iconic significance in Irish literature. Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett "We had another drink".
One has escaped in a single bound the Wee Free manse that spawned John Buchan. One enters instead the amoral realm of a master of the short sentence not to mention short words like "moll". Hammett was the pioneer of the "hardboiled" detective novel. Earlier, until he left in disgust at their labour espionage work and became a communist, he worked for the Pinkerton detective agency. Red Harvest is a spy's repentance.
Mining capitalist Elihu Wilsson owns it in every respect until his revolutionary workers go on strike. Wilsson introduces professional strikebreakers and one murder follows another, 20 of them committed by the Op himself. Wanderer by Sterling Hayden At least in being so well written, this is a novel masquerading as autobiography. In his Hollywood years he flirted with communism when it was in vogue; then betrayed his comrades under McCarthyism; then denounced McCarthyism when the sheep turned in that direction.
It's all in his account, and he's honest about his weakness. And about others' frailties. But the Brits guarded their patch: Alden Pyle, its protagonist, is a recognisable prototype of the Ivy League "best and brightest" who got America stuck in a Southeast Asian quagmire. Pyle jousts with his worldly and tolerant British counterpart over the delectable Phuong. Tinker is my least original selection as most readers or moviegoers will know about George Smiley's struggle with Moscow's presiding intelligence genius Karla.
