Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy;Our Kind of Traitor; and The Night Manager, now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carre's new novel, A Legacy of Spies, is now available. "You want to catch the lion, first you tether the goat." On holiday in Mykonos, Charlie wants only sunny days and a brief escape from England's bourgeois dreariness. Then a handsome stranger lures the aspiring actress away from her pals--but his intentions are far from romantic. Joseph is an Israeli intelligence officer, and Charlie has been wooed to flush out the leader of a Palestinian terrorist group responsible for a string of deadly bombings. Still uncertain of her own allegiances, she debuts in the role of a lifetime as a double agent in the "theatre of the real." Haunting and deeply atmospheric, John le Carre's The Little Drummer Girl is a virtuoso performance and a powerful examination of morality and justice. With an introduction by the author.
