The British Embassy in Bonn is up in arms. Her Majesty's financially troubled government is seeking admission to Europe's Common Market just as anti-British factions are rising to power in Germany. Rioters are demanding reunification, and the last thing the Crown can afford is a scandal. Then Leo Harting - an embassy nobody - goes missing with a case full of confidential files. London sends Alan Turner to control the damage, but he soon realises that neither side really wants Leo found - alive.

"Exciting, compulsively readable and brilliantly plotted." (The New York Times)
"Brilliant, unforgettable ... a masterpiece." (New Statesman)
I new the story as i have listened to the BBC play, but this full adaptation and reading was just magic. Le Carre at his best, the portrayal of embassy staff was superb and the lead characters portrayal was perfect
john Le Carre tells a good tale, but this is not his best. The end is, as often with Le Carre, disappointing as it Peters out.
Michael Jayson reads brilliantly as ever.
