John le Carre 's classic novels deftly navigate readers through the
intricate shadow worlds of international intrigue with unsurpassed
skill and knowledge, and have earned him unprecedented worldwide
A lawyer from a London finance house is shot dead on a Turkish
hillside by people with whom he thought he was in business. A
children's magician in the English countryside is asked to explain
the arrival of more than five million pounds sterling in his young
daughter's modest trust.
In "Single & Single," le Carre masterfully establishes a
sequence of events whose connections are mysterious, complex and
compelling. He tells of corrupt liaisons between criminal elements
in the new Russian states and the world of legitimate finance in
the West. He also paints an intimate portrait of two families: one
Russian, the other English; one trading illicit goods, the other
laundering the profits; one betrayed by a son-in-law, the other
betrayed, and redeemed, by a son.
