Product description

Review

Perhaps the most significant novelist of the second half of the 20th century in Britain . . . He should have won the Booker Prize a long time ago. It's time he won it and it's time he accepted it. He's in the first rank. -- Ian McEwan ― Telegraph

No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times, from the Second World War to the "War on Terror"Guardian

One of those writers who will be read a century from now -- Robert Harris

With A Delicate Truth, le Carré has in a sense come home. And it's a splendid homecoming . . . Satisfying, subtle and compellingThe Times

The perfectly paced, exquisitely cynical style that is le Carré's hallmarkSunday Times

The master of the modern spy novel returns . . . this is writing of such quality that - as Robert Harris put it - it will be read in one hundred yearsDaily Mail

A brilliant climax, with sinister deaths, casual torture, wrecked lives and shameful compromisesObserver

A writer of towering gifts . . . le Carré is one of the great analysts of the contemporary scene, who has a talent to provoke as well as unsettleIndependent

John le Carré takes us back to his favourite scenarios: Whitehall, the secret services, the gentleman's clubs, dodgy bankers, corrupt public schoolboys and gruesome American neo-cons . . . revelling once more in that imaginary world of secrets and lies that is le Carré's gift to usEvening Standard

Thrilling, suspenseful . . . Fans will not be disappointedSunday Express
