The narration beautifully added perfection to an already stunning work. Well done Michael Jayson.

It's amazing how vividly Le Carré makes the characters & setting with such pared back description. The setting of an outdated boarding school is interesting & the plot mostly keeps you guessing. As much a whydunnit as a whodunnit. This was the last of the major Smiley books I have read. It's also interesting to note the social changes of the past 56 years.

Where does A Murder of Quality rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I very much enjoyed this thriller but it is not my favourite Le Carre. It maybe that the genre, its different, moves away from the cold war, and revolves around a private school for which I personally hold very negative memories. But I have to say that the writing is quite brilliant as per usual.I must also also mention Michael Jayston who adds another dimension to the written word (that I have read previously with admiration). He is clear and concise and the change to tone of voice when characterising females in the narrative is brilliant.I have given this an overall 4 star rating (rather than my usual almost automatic 5 for Le Carre) but please don't let that discourage. Its a fine story with fine characterisation and a beautiful example of how to use the English language to its best. Highly recommended.
