A corporate lawyer from the House of Single & Single is shot dead in cold blood on a Turkish hillside for crimes that he does not understand. A children's entertainer in Devon is hauled to his local bank late at night to explain a monumental influx of cash. A Russian freighter is arrested in the Black Sea. A celebrated London financier has disappeared into thin air. A British customs officer is on a trail of corruption and murder.


The logical connection of these events is one of the many pleasures of this extraordinary new novel of love, deceit, family and the triumph of humanity. On le Carre's roller-coaster, we hurtle from a seaside haven in Devon through the sophisticated jungle of West End wheeler-dealing, the crime-driven streets of post-Communist Russia to a billionaires' fastness on the banks of the Bosphorus and a secret paradise in the High Caucasus. But Single & Single is above all a thrilling journey of the contemporary human heart - intimate, magical, riotous and subtly architected, showing us John le Carre at the height of his dramatic and creative powers.
