about

John le Carré's classic novels deftly navigate readers through the intricate shadow worlds of international espionage with unsurpassed skill and knowledge, and have earned him unprecedented worldwide acclaim. A man is missing. Harting, refugee background, a Junior Something in the British Embassy in Bonn. Gone with him are forty-three files, all of them Confidential or above. It is vital that the Germans do not learn that Harting is missing, nor that there's been a leak. With radical students and neo-Nazis rioting and critical negotiations under way in Brussels, the timing could not be worse -- and that's probably not an accident. Alan Turner, London's security officer, is sent to Bonn to find the missing man and files as Germany's past, present, and future threaten to collide in a nightmare of violence.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Secrets and more secrets The setting is Bonn during the late '60s when it was the 'temporary' capital of West Germany. The cold war is in deep freeze and the second world war is fresh in everyone's memory...although many are doing their best to forget. A Nazi who has laundered his past with the best sparkly clean whitener is gaining public support. And, the British Embassy has just lost a junior diplomat and 50 top secret files. The Foreign Office sends in an investigator. He quickly discovers that what should make sense in a simple case of a spying, just doesn't make sense this time. A really good spy novel.
