A new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author John le Carré
Set in London in 2018, Agent Running in the Field follows a twenty-six year old solitary figure who, in a desperate attempt to resist the new political turbulence swirling around him, makes connections that will take him down a very dangerous path. In his plot and characterization le Carré is as thrilling as ever and in the way he writes about our times he proves himself, once again, to be the greatest chronicler of our age.

Bravo, Mr. le Carre! You still have the writing skills of a young man. This spy tale has plenty of twists and surprises. In this particular story, you inject a bit of the feeling of being obsoleted by age too. Thanks to Viking Canada and Edelweiss+ for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
