The unrivaled master of spy fiction returns with a taut
and suspenseful of dirty money and dirtier politics.
For nearly half a century, John le Carré's
limitless imagination has enthralled millions of readers and
moviegoers around the globe. From the cold war to the bitter
fruits of colonialism to unrest in the Middle East, he has
reinvented the spy novel again and again. Now, le Carré
makes his Viking debut with a stunning tour-de-force that
only a craftsman of his caliber could pen. As menacing and
flawlessly paced as The Little Drummer Girl and as
morally complex as The Constant Gardener, Our Kind of
Traitor is signature le Carré.
. Perry and Gail
are idealistic and very much in love when they splurge on a
tennis vacation at a posh beach resort in Antigua. But the
charm begins to pall when a big-time Russian money launderer
enlists their help to defect. In exchange for amnesty, Dima
is ready to rat out his vory (Russian criminal
brotherhood) compatriots and expose corruption throughout
the so-called legitimate financial and political worlds.
Soon, the guileless couple find themselves pawns in a deadly
endgame whose outcome will be determined by the victor of
the British Secret Service's ruthless internecine battles.
