Britain is in the depths of recession. A left-leaning young Oxford academic and his barrister girlfriend take an off-peak holiday on the Caribbean island of Antigua. Seemingly by 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.
But he wants something else too, something which 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. John le Carré reads his own taut, suspenseful tale of dirty money and dirtier politics.

The story in itself,and the author's magnificent reading voice and style.
Any Daniel Silva novel. First rate, always.
No, this is the first time.
I was impressed and enjoyed every minute of it. No laghter or tears: The genre is not suited to either emotion, but the humour is there,of course!
A splendid performance. Worth every penny.
