The Night Manager

The night manager is Jonathan, a veteran of clandestine operations. In flight from a failed marriage and his own past, he has taken refuge in the luxury hotel trade. Yet he finds no escape from his demons. Driven by a desire for atonement and by an inherited patriotism, Jonathan allows himself to be recruited as a British secret agent with a mission to expose the murderer of the woman he himself betrayed. His odyssey takes him across Britain and Canada to the Caribbean and the jungles of Panama. But there are more treacherous jungles still in Whitehall and Washington.

    "a masterpiece, the arms trade monster"

    John le Carre always draws the reader into the story he is telling, I kept questioning my own perceptions of where the law should or shouldn't apply. Supply meeting demand, and the people who are willing to be facilitators, create the monster in our midst with our tacit tolerance. A powerful story!

    "A classic Le Carré"

    As usual from Le Carré a well paced thriller, drawing the eader into the psychological And intellectual aspects of the plot, it's a contempory account of political and criminal intrigue, the lines between good and bad, political manouverings and the expediency of the hero caught up in all of this is a common theme in Le Carrés books, but I think it is well done here. Definitely worth a listen. Great narration as well, always crucial to the enjoyment of a good listen!

    Strong characterisation and a gripping storyline with a huge sweep of locations. As usual Le Carre handles the atmospheres brilliantly.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Night Manager?

    The build up if suspense at the end of the book is momentous.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes and this is one of his best. He seems to have a great affinity to Le Carre's characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Story
    "State of the Art Spy Fiction."

    A contemporary tale from arguably the number one spy fiction writer ever. Gripping, compelling, believable, exciting.... in fact everything you expect and want from this genre is delivered with aplomb.
