All The Right Words – The Ipcress File by Len Deighton.

The following blog has Spoilers. (Apologies for the lateness of post as I had an Internet blackout from Friday to Monday afternoon)
Recap – Our Spy has been given two people to work with, in the hope that together they can find Jay and the people he works for. Dalby then gives the spy the power to run the entire department. And just as our spy is going to give up a call from The local police station changes everything.

Chapter Eleven-“We’ve had a call from Shoreditch Police Station, sir. Frightfully funny business really”

A call is put though about a man dressed up as Chief inspector, the man is know Non criminal nothing can be proved hours by his told and russia’s to find out who it could be. But getting there is told that ‘two other’ have Just finished interviewing him.

When spy gets into the cell the man is dead and it turns out be the housemen from frist the club and the Airplane.The spy then interviews the The constable who stopped house manan brought into the police station. Carefully they piece together where he could have come from and set up a task force to raid the premises.

Chapter Twelve – Acacia Drive was a wide wet street in one of those districts where the suburbs creep stealthily in towards Central London.

The spy, Murrary and and the task force, Quietly desend on the house the constable picked out. But its the spy and who frist get inside with help from a sheet of brown paper covered with police county golden syrup.

But within seconds it becomes clear the house in empty.

What I think –

The last two chapters have shown the spy more as a Investigator and paper pusher with the internal politics of the service at his back, also the way the family spy network is setup. But Doesn’t get in the way of the action and the driving plot to find Jay
