Reviews


An exciting story, excitingly told
The Observer


A few years ago le Carré said he had not written the book he would want to be buried with. Perhaps he has done so now.
The Sunday Times


In my view, this book is at least as good as his best
The Spectator


An irresistible book... Charlie is the ultimate double agent
The New York Times
