The Tailor of Panama

by John le Carré Fiction

  • Hodder and Stoughton (1996, 464 pages)

Harry Pendel is the charismatic proprietor of Pendel and Braithwaite Limitada of Panama, through whose doors everyone who is anyone in Central America passes; Andrew Osnard, mysterious and fleshy, is a spy.

His secret mission is two-pronged: to keep a watchful eye on the political manoeuvrings leading up to the American handover of the Panama Canal on 31st December 1999; and to secure for himself the immense private fortune that has until now churlishly eluded him.

The Tailor of Panama was filmed as a major motion picture in 2001 starring Pierce Brosnan, Geoffrey Rush and Jamie Lee Curtis.
