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.

I absolutely loved the TV version of this, but found the audio version really confusing. The book skips back and forth in time so much and there are so many flashbacks, I couldn't follow where he was. Either read the hard copy book or watch the show instead!
