The Endless Game is the first of a two-book series (the second is: A Spy at Twilight) in the vein of the Le Carre "Karla" quartet. Forbes also played his part in that "game" and writes with considerable authority. The book is well-crafted and grips you as you work through the developing enigma and misleading clues with the protagonist. The characters are complex and believable, the plot consistent and the outcome unguessable until the last pages. Altogether, a most satisfying read for lovers of spy fiction.

Her murder raises the eyebrows of MI6 and stirs the long-dormant heartbeat of her former lover, agent Alec Hillsden. Hillsden tries to fathom the reason for Caroline's sudden murder, and the tables of friendship and loyalty turn on him several times before the end of his quest. Forbes is a powerful, smoothly professional writer and he seasons the tension in his novel with a diverting panoply of characters.

All of the minor characters are shimmering diversions to keep the eye guessing as Forbes spins out his mad plot of Western cynism versus Eastern: ""Just another ideology. a blind faith in the morality of Us as opposed to Them. All of the participants on both sides of the dividing line playing the same endless nihilistic game. Or as Caroline once tells Alec in bed: ".I still have reason to hate. That's the game we're in, Alec dear. Not the love game, the hate game.

Starts off splendidly; the plot is gripping and offers some nice unexpected twists. The second half, alas, goes downhill, and the conclusion is pretty unsatisfying and leaves a number of loose ends. (I gather Forbes wrote a sequel, but I'm not motivated to seek it out.)

But what an amazingly good writer he was, of action and description as well as of dialogue. Add to this the fact that Forbes -- a former actor -- was one of the greatest English directors of the 20th century (for "Whistle Down the Wind," "Séance on a Wet Afternoon," and "The L-Shaped Room," and for the lesser but amusing "The Wrong Box") and you come away filled with admiration for this true renaissance man.

Not a bad little page-turner. I liked the story line; it has been done before, but not this well. The book sneaks up on you and really [stinks] you in. You find your self almost hurrying to the next page because the suspense builds through to the end of the book. Very good characters with competent development and well thought out roles within the story. I would have liked a bit more detail on the locations. Overall a good book from the period.
