The beautiful Tessa Quayle is murdered near Lake Turkana in Northern Kenya, the birthplace of mankind. And her putative African lover and travelling companion has vanished from the scene of the crime.
Tessa's husband, a career diplomat and amateur gardener at the British High Commission in Nairobi, sets out on a personal odyssey in pursuit of the killers and their motive. On his way he meets terror, violence and conspiracy, but his greatest discovery is the woman he barely had time to love.
Frightening, heartbreaking and exquisitely calibrated, The Constant Gardener is a profoundly moving story of a man ennobled by his wife's tragic murder and a magnificent exploration of the dark side of unbridled capitalism.

"Richly detailed, full of righteous fire to offset its desperate prognosis, The Constant Gardener is a very impressive piece of work. It is certainly one of John le Carré's best books." (The Times Literary Supplement)
