Two young lovers find themselves in the darkening basement of an anonymous house in Bloomsbury. In the same room sit two members of Britain's intelligence service. And they want information.

The couple, Perry and Gail, have just returned from holiday in the Caribbean where they met the mysterious Dima, a Russian millionaire in fear for his life. The Russian thinks that only the unlikely figure of Perry can save him. And Dima has cash - and he is prepared to pay.

Their meeting will propel Perry and Gail on a terrifying journey from London to Paris and on to a safe house deep in the Swiss Alps. When there is that much money at stake, and a British government that needs it that badly, certain sacrifices, even if it means a life or two, will have to be made . . .

'Taut, unfolds with a growing sense of foreboding to a dark climax.' - Financial Times

'Le Carré's bullet train of a new thriller is part vintage le Carré and part Alfred Hitchcock . . . The author's most thrilling thriller in years.' - New York Times

John le Carré

John le Carré is the nom de plume of David John Moore Cornwell, who was born in 1931 in Poole, Dorset, and was educated at Sherborne School, at the University of Berne (where he studied German literature for a year) and at Lincoln College, Oxford, where he graduated with a first-class honours degree in modern languages.

He taught at Eton from 1956 to 1958 and was a member of the British Foreign Service from 1959 to 1964, serving first as Second Secretary in the British Embassy in Bonn and subsequently as Political Consul in Hamburg. He started writing novels in 1961, and since then has published twenty-one titles.
