John le Carré, the legendary author of sophisticated spy thrillers, is at the top of his game in this classic novel of a world in chaos. With the Cold War over, a new era of espionage has begun. In the power vacuum left by the Soviet Union, arms dealers and drug smugglers have risen to immense influence and wealth. The sinister master of them all is Richard Onslow Roper, the charming, ruthless Englishman whose operation seems untouchable.

David Case’s affection is way over the top and ruins the story. Most frustrating is that there is an earlier version, which Audible has, but cannot be purchased in the US. Apparently publishing houses can dictate where and when their products will face competition from alternative editions and productions.
