At the start of it all, Jonathan Pine is merely the night manager at a luxury hotel. But when a single attempt to pass on information to the British authorities - about an international businessman at the hotel with suspicious dealings - backfires terribly, and people close to Pine begin to die, he commits himself to a battle against powerful forces he cannot begin to imagine. In a chilling tale of corrupt intelligence agencies, billion-dollar price tags and the truth of the brutal arms trade, John le Carre creates a claustrophobic world in which no one can be trusted.

Reviews

When I was under house arrest I was helped by the books of John le Carre ... they were a journey into the wider world ... These were the journeys that made me feel that I was not really cut off from the rest of humankind -- Aung San Suu Kyi One of those writers who will be read a century from now -- Robert Harris He can communicate emotion, from sweating fear to despairing love, with terse and compassionate conviction * Sunday Times (on 'The Spy Who Came in from the Cold') * Return of the master . . . Having plumbed the devious depths of the Cold War, le Carre has done it again for our nasty new age * The Times (on 'Our Kind of Traitor') *
