    Abandoned by his parents, Bruno Salvador has long looked for guidance. He found it in Mr. Anderson of British Intelligence. Working for Anderson in a clandestine facility, Salvo (as he's known) translates intercepted phone calls, bugged recordings, and snatched voice-mail messages. When Anderson sends him to a mysterious island to interpret during a secret conference, Bruno thinks he is helping Britain--but then he hears something he should not have.

    Delightfully delicious. Wonderfully written. John LeCarre is a great wordsmith. The subject is Africa, and he makes one believe we should listen not only to the story but to the moral as well.

Cross' family - his loving wife Bree, the wise and lively Nana Mama, and his precious children - have been ripped away. Terrified and desperate, Cross must give this mad man what he wants if he has any chance of saving the most important people in his life. The stakes have never been higher: What will Cross sacrifice to save the ones he loves?

    Story

    The formula is wearing thin. May be my last Patterson. The dragon slayer needs dragons that aren't fixated on him. I'm glad he has the most wonderful family ever and he'd win father of the year; but the world is a big place and focusing on the Cross family is too narrow. Seems to me he is getting paid per word and has lost a lot in creativity. Maybe he is spreading himself too thin with all his other series?
