    A lawyer from the London finance house of Single & Single is shot dead on a Turkish hillside by people with whom he thought he was in business. A children's magician is asked by his bank to explain the unsolicited arrival of more than five million pounds sterling in his young daughter's modest trust. A freighter bound for Liverpool is boarded by Russian coast guards in the Black Sea. The celebrated London merchant venturer "Tiger" Single disappears into thin air.

    What would have made Single & Single better?

    A common thread that would have connected the story line.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John le Carre again?

    Normally I can follow a le Carre plot but not this one and I've either read or listened to 6 or 7of his books. I’m not sure I will spend my money on another. I think I’ll return this one for credit. I’m very sorry I wasted my time.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Jayston’s performance?

    Don't know how he followed the plot.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Always love how le Carre expresses the snobbery of the upper class Brits.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time on this one.
