Publisher's Summary

Set in contemporary, recession gripped Britain, a left-leaning young Oxford academic and his barrister girlfriend take an off-peak holiday on the Caribbean island of Antigua. By seeming chance they bump into a Russian millionaire called Dima who owns a peninsula and a diamond-encrusted gold watch. He also has a tattoo on his right thumb, and wants a game of tennis.
What else he wants propels the young lovers on a tortuous journey through Paris to a safe house in the Swiss Alps, to the murkiest cloisters of the City of London and its unholy alliance with Britain’s Intelligence Establishment.

old style Le Carre meets new

I've been reading Le Carre for only 3 years and tend to like his less-well-regarded later novels better than his older classics. Audiobooks are, however, giving me better appreciation of the old, and THIS audiiobook seems the perfect marriage of Le Carre's traditional theme of innocents consumed by a compromising Brit insider-elite with the more overt social concerns of his later novels.

I found this as well-written, plotted and characterized as traditional LeCarre, but at the same time it's a very accessible listen.

Great Le Carre

Fascinating story, terrific characters. One of my favourite writers on excellent form. Wonderful reader too. Did all the dialogue brilliantly, which made the book even more exciting to listen to.
