Contents

Plot

Cockpit is a debriefing after a long, tortuous mission. An agent known only as Tarden is a former operative of the mysterious security agency “the Service.” He has erased himself from all dossiers and transcripts. Now a fugitive, he moves across the landscape free of identity, in search of adventure and intrigue. But Tarden is a man of many disguises, and he is alternately avenger and savior, judge and trickster, as he enters the lives of others, forcing them into the arena of his judgment. In Cockpit Kosinski is at his most startling and powerful, stripping away pretension and illusions of security to reveal the source of real strength within.

Reception

According to an interview with Kosiński, Cockpit was well received by British audiences, and was praised for Kosiński's "quick changes of invention" in relation to Tarden's identity switching and character development.
