Although an avid reader, I didn't think le Carre would be my cup of tea... but this book was so amazing that now I'll be looking for his other well-known best sellers. A most unusual protagonist, and an even more unusual tale. Even while describing the most horrendous of human capabilities, the writing is almost lyrical, and the story unfolds slowly and tantalizingly. Kept me up late to finish it.
