At nearly fifty, Nat is certain his years as an agent runner are over, but Britain's Secret Intelligence Service offers him an alternative to retirement: take over a small substation with a group of rough and unready spies.

    In Le Carré's provocative espionage thriller, Ned has been called back to London after years abroad. He quickly discovers that at 47 he's considered past his prime. Disillusioned and effectively dismissed by the agency, he's put in charge of a lackluster London intelligence outpost, where his connection to a brash young female agent and a young man seemingly destined for disaster proves he has lost none of his skills, if some of his fidelity to the service. Le Carré's voice, an elegant English-accented baritone, seems too old at first—and then, suddenly, the voice is perfect for this world-weary, almost retired spy. He relates events and conversations after the fact, and all is from Ned's perspective and in his voice. Le Carré is an accomplished storyteller, and, as a narrator, he makes the most of the smart, complicated, and very political plot. Listening to him tell the story is a distinct pleasure.
