    A Delicate Truth opens in 2008. A counter-terrorist operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted on the British crown colony of Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, a private defense contractor who is also his bosom friend, and a shady American CIA operative of the evangelical far right. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister’s personal private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it.

    Darwin8u says: "A latter-day Jeremiah of espionage & statecraft."
    "One of Le Carre's best"

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Delicate Truth to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version so I cannot comment on audo vs print. The audio edition was captivating.


    Any additional comments?

    At age 81, Le Carre has written what is for me one of his best books. A complex story, beautifully told and beautifully read by the author. Very timely and with no "they lived happily ever after" ending. I found myself going back to hear parts of the story over again to clarify details and just to enjoy the author's voice. I have no doubt I will listen to this work many times, as I have so many of his novels. Most highly recommended.
