The Garden of Weapons free pdf A shocking defection draws Herbie back to the most treacherous city on earth: Berlin The younger British spies think of Big Herbie Kruger as a middle-aged relic from the early days of the Cold War. Only a few people know that Kruger is one of England's most important agents--a quick-witted devil with more power than anyone knows. In 1955, Kruger established a German intelligence network with an unparalleled reach into the Soviet Union. Years later, he feels a twinge of sadness when he learns that his old KGB rival has run afoul of state security, and been forced to take his own life. But Kruger doesn't count on the dead man's lieutenant. Rather than face Moscow's wrath, the Russian defects into Kruger's hands--a bit of good fortune that soon calls up all sorts of old ghosts. In Berlin, the divided city, Herbie Kruger is about to be split in half.

About John Gardner

John Gardner (1926-2007) was a British novelist best known for writing spy thrillers. During World War II, Gardner served in the Home Guard and the Royal Marine Commandos. At the war's end Gardner decided to follow in his father's footsteps and become an Anglican priest. After five years in the church, Gardner left to pursue journalism. His first book, "Spin the Bottle "(1964), was a memoir about his struggles with alcoholism. That year, he also published a spy novel that would make him famous. "The Liquidator" introduced Boysie Oakes, an international man of mystery whose extreme cowardice makes him afraid to use his license to kill. Gardner published eight novels in the series, and his success spoofing James Bond led the publishers of the Bond novels to hire him to continue the series after creator Ian Fleming's death. In addition to writing more than a dozen Bond books, Gardner created series characters Herbie Kruger and Suzie Mountford. His last novel was the posthumously published "Moriarty" (2008).
