book | Fiction | 1999
UK → Hodder and Stoughton

A corporate lawyer from the House of Single & Single is shot dead in cold blood on a Turkish hillside for crimes that he does not understand. A children’s entertainer in Devon is hauled to his local bank late at night to explain a monumental influx of cash. A Russian freighter is arrested in the Black Sea. A celebrated London financier has disappeared into thin air. A British customs officer is on a trail of corruption and murder.

Single & Single is a thrilling journey of the contemporary human heart - intimate, magical, riotous and subtly architected, showing us John le Carré at the height of his dramatic and creative powers.

Reviews

An adventure that takes us to the ends of the earth via the rich but often barren landscape of the human heart
The Times

Single & Single manages to make some serious points about history amid a riot of whoops and skips, genre flourishes and delighted winks to the gallery
The Guardian

The tale is energized by le Carre's breathtaking versatility with settings and voices, and his authoritative portrayal of the way things are done in the shifty world succeeding his former Cold War preoccupations
Publishers Weekly
Full Review

The finest imaginative social historian of the post-war years
The Times Literary Supplement

A masterly work, faultless fiction of the highest order
Glasgow Herald
