This week's competition, in which you have to identify a book from its opening sentence, proves it takes one to know one - the author served as a naval intelligence officer during the last war: "There are moments of great luxury in the life of a secret agent."

The winner receives a £25 Blackwell's book voucher and
the closing date is August 31 .

Entries should be sent to
