The plot and writing captures me time and time again.
The twists are unexpected and nothing is as it seems. Classic Le Carre!
Another super novel from John le Carre. Michael Jayston is a delight to listen to.
"I could listen to Michael Jayston all day."
Excellent plot and wonderful narration
The plot and character development
No favourite. Le Carre is great at all levels of character
"You have to really, really like spy stories"
No probably not
They were all a bit boring
I wasted a credit on this one.
