A Delicate Truth is a total joy to read. Classic in style while remaining current with wonderful characters as only le Carre can create.

The exploration of ' soldiers for hire' supported financially by wealthy political blocs with an agenda is fascinating and their collaboration with duplicitous politicians elected to 'serve' from both sides of the ocean is perfection. As always le Carre has a deft understanding of the capacity for those in power to justify anything and for those who serve to be outraged and sometimes do something. I know I will read this again as I have so many of le Carre's creations, just to savor his style and descriptive sentences -such beautiful sentences- that make one go back just to taste them again !

Yet again, many of the ratings, good and bad, are by texters visiting among themselves. None of them reflect actual readers views. To give a book 5 stars or 1 star just because you have to rate to review, is ridiculous. It's time BN starts taking this book review page seriously and reviews the 'reviews' before they are posted. Everyone - start flagging the texters as 'not helpful' and report the review as off topic or inappropriate content.

    Hunter's Story: Chapter Three

    †ONE WEEK LATER† "Are you COMPLETELY sure it was her?" asked Nightstar. "Yes," said Sunsetfire. "I proved it." Nightgod closed his eyes. "Not during the fight with Darkness..." Nightgod knew that once he did this, there would be no going back, but he had no other choice. He had to kill the imposter. "Oceanblaze! Watch the camp" Nightgod said. Nightgod walked into the nursery, claws unsheathed.
