Taut, tense, and fluid, this return to form by one of the originators of spy fiction is a wonderful little potboiler to be read in one sitting. If escapism and thrillers are your thing, sit down to this pacy offering with all of le Carré’s trademark tight plotting, stylised prose, and sharp dialogue. Steph, The Book Grocer
