Читать онлайн Charlie Muffin . Charlie Muffin, who was a realist and therefore aware of the social gulf between himself and Rupert Willoughby’s friends, was curious about the reason for his invitation. He still went to the party, of course; a man officially listed as a dead traitor by the Intelligence Services of both Britain and America and wishing to remain that way doesn’t get out much and Charlie liked company, even company which seemed to regard him oddly. Realist again, Charlie accepted that it wasn’t their fault.

What a fun story! I delayed buying this book because of the lackluster reviews. I should have known that it would be impossible to have a less than 4 or 5 star Charlie Muffin story. Charlie has everything in this tale; an adulteress affair, FBI & KGB out to kill him, betrayal and vengeance. Hell really breaks loose at the climax; cars wrecked, bullets flying, things blown up, fire and death galore. Charlie really knows how to have a good time.

I know this is an old book. I remembered reading and enjoying a couple of Charlie Muffin books when I was a kid. This story is full of holes. The main character is supposedly hiding from the KGB, MI5 and the CIA but contacts people who think he is dead, has regular contact with people from his past, and does all sorts of stuff that would draw attention to himself including taking a security contract to protect a shipment of stamps that he says the KGB would certainly be watching.

Other flaws: The American mobsters in the book use terms like "hire car" instead of rental car, and "fortnight" instead of two weeks. No American mobster has ever heard the term "fortnight." There are FBI agents in the book who are willing to kill somebody they don't even know so they can catch a mobster, and the orders come down the chain of command so it's not a rogue agent, it's the organization that decides to do it. None of that makes sense.

Oh well. It would probably make a good spy movie.

This one is even better than the first three, or perhaps I feel that way because I just finished it. The writing and dialogue are excellent. The plot is fast moving and full of twists and turns and snags that keep building into a knot that only a great brain could maneuver through. The plot reminds me very much of a P. G. Wodehouse masterpiece, requiring the great Jeeves to figure out a resolution to a seemingly intractable problem. Charlie M is once again up against the most formidable possible forces that wish him terminal harm, and Charlie once again manages to survive, relying on sheer cunning and experience. Don't miss this series. gcm

Like all of freemantle's work, well written but plot & characters range between unlikely and absurd with a side trip through ridiculous!

While the Charlie Muffin books are written as a sequence in time it is probably unwise to assume that the series is a logical, coherent whole. In the first volume, entitled Charlie Muffin and published and set in 1977, Charlie is already middle aged with a long career as a spy behind him. Yet in the most recent works, published and set in 2013, he is still middle aged and still spying.

As others have noted, the plots are of variable quality. Most have a twist or two on the last page. These often result from some furtive action Charlie took, almost unnoticed by the reader, once his survival instincts warned him of impending danger.

In this case, Charlie, for the moment not a spy, represents a Lloyds of London insurance syndicate who have insured a unique and priceless stamp collection. A drug "kingpin" wants to steal the collection and the FBI want him to succeed so that they can then raid his home, find the stolen stamps, and arrest the man. It's the Al Capone plot: if you can't get him for what makes him rich get him for how he misuses his wealth. However, rather than bringing the insurers inside the tent, the FBI maintains secrecy. Once Charlie works out some of what's going on he sets in train a series of events that totally disrupt everyone's plans.

In the closing chapters the robbers, a group of Cuban soldiers (working for the Russians), the FBI, and the local police are involved in a massive, and wholly unbelievable, shoot-out and Charlie quietly vanishes.

Not one of Freemantle's better efforts.

Reading these novels in reverse order has generally worked, but in this one I was confused. The Russian spy Berenkov was friendly with Charlie, but in a later novel he was plotting Charlie's undoing as revenge for being caught in his spying in England. It's a contradiction. I just didn't like this novel so much as Charlie definitely was out of his comfort zone working in the USA. It didn't ring true for him. Author Brian Freemantle apparently was unsure where he wanted the series to go. Here he has let 8 years transpire between Charlie's first introductory novel. Wife Edith has died, and apparently a big operation against the CIA led Charlie to go on the run, faking his death in a plane crash. We missed out on it all since Freemantle chose to skip those 8 years.
