This chapter looks at two novels set in Vienna and Berlin during the Cold War. It studies Storm Jameson's The Black Laurel, which presents a Gothic symbolic and historical spatialization of Berlin. The novel is considered a fiction about the special relationship regarded as European Gothic. The discussion then shifts to Graham Greene's The Third Man, which resulted from his contacts in the subtle world of intelligence.

Keywords:   Cold War, Vienna, Berlin, Gothic, spatialization, special relationship, world of intelligence, The Black Laurel, The Third Man
