Editorial Reviews

Review

“A subtle and acute story of counterespionage marked by restraint, indirection, and intelligence.”
The New York Times Book Review

"[Le Carré] is one of our great writers of moral ambiguity, a tireless explorer of that darkly contradictory no-man's-land."
Los Angeles Times

"Brilliant. Realistic. Constant suspense...excellent writing."
Observer (UK)

“Thrilling…makes most cloak-and-dagger stuff taste of cardboard.”
Sunday Telegraph (UK)
