The Tailor of Panama
- By: John le Carré
- Narrated by: Michael Jayston
- Length: 13 hrs and 41 mins
Harry Pendel is the charismatic proprietor of Pendel and Braithwaite Limitada of Panama, through whose doors everyone who is anyone in Central America passes. Andrew Osnard, mysterious and fleshy, is a spy. His secret mission is two-pronged: to keep a watchful eye on the political manoeuvrings leading up to the American handover of the Panama Canal on 31st December 1999; and to secure for himself the immense private fortune that has until now churlishly eluded him.
Great start but got bored in the middle

not my favourite
I had difficulty with this book as I struggled to emphatise with the main character, which is a first for me as I have read/listened to the majority of the authors work....
the production/narration was flawless, but for me, for once, the story was not one I could really get into...
