Seldom has the weight of politics descended so heavily on such a tiny and unprepared nation. And seldom has the hidden eye of the British Intelligence selected such an unlikely champion as Harry Pendel - a charmer, a dreamer, an evader, a fabulist and presiding genius to the house of Pendel & Braithwaite Co. Limitada, Tailors to Royalty, formerly of London and presently of Panama City.
Yet there is a logic to the spies' choice, for everybody who is anybody in Cental America passes through Pendel's doors. He dresses politicos and crooks and conmen. His fitting room hears more confidences than the priest's confessional. And when Harry Pendel doesn't hear things as such - well, he hears them anyway, by other means.
In a thrilling, hilarious AudioBook, le Carre once again effortlessly expands the borders of the spy story to bring us a magnificent entertainment straight out of the pages of tomorrow's history.

Not one of Le Carré's best
Would you try another book from John le Carré and/or John le Carré?
Would you recommend The Tailor of Panama to your friends? Why or why not?
No. The book gets off to a great start but then the plot gets muddled. Seems as if le Carré lost interest. Read the original by Graham Greene.
How could the performance have been better?
Get an actor to read the book. Le Carré cannot imitate an American accent! Or a woman's voice. This reading was just terrible.
