Would I read another book by this author?
Definitely.

Would I recommend this book?
Yes.

To whom would I recommend this book?
To anyone who enjoys good, thoughtful espionage novels based on realistic activities of existing intelligence agencies. This is a Cold War related espionage story and hence anyone interested in spying during the Cold War era would be interested.

Did this book inspire me to do anything?
It has inspired me to reaffirm my liking of the books of Len Deighton.

Mexico Set is the second book in Deighton's Game, Set, Match trilogy and I found it a good second book. It has sufficient story to work as a standalone but to get full value from it one should already have read the first in the series, Berlin Game. I am looking forward to the third, London Match.

I confess I lost track of the characters and the plot. Strangely, I didn't care as the main character carried me along with his espionage activities and his relationships with other spooks. Written in 1962, the parts focused on nuclear technology were fascinating, and the atmosphere was utterly believable. I have read Deighton's Game, Set, and Match and this was every bit as dense and interesting.
