    New spies with new loyalties, old spies with old ones; terror as the new mantra; decent people wanting to do good but caught in the moral maze; all the sound, rational reasons for doing the inhuman thing; the recognition that we cannot safely love or pity and remain good "patriots" -- this is the fabric of John le Carré's fiercely compelling and current novel A Most Wanted Man.

    S. Lev-Ami says: "Le Carre's Back!"
    "A Waste of Time"
    Overall

    I use to wait for a new Le Carre novel with anticipation of an enjoyable spy thriller, but his last couple of books seem like he is running out of steam. There is no character development in this one, and what little information the author provides makes me dislike almost everyone in the book. This is a senseless boring book that only serves to vent his wrath at the CIA and, after leading the reader through a boring and almost plotless story you are slammed into the wall with a totally unsatisfactory ending. Thank God there was a "Audible hopes you enjoyed this book" at the end or I would have sworn that I had only heard the first part and the story would continue.
    Instead I was left saying "is that all there is?"
