All of le Carré's novels are about people going missing, defectors etc and this is no different, but the overlaying of the missing man himself, with the search for him as two separate threads, is elegantly done, and Michael Jayston manages to differentiate which side of the story you're in, without any silly devices.
It's a solid read, as are all Jayston's, and the story gives him plenty to work with. (Posted on 27 July 2012)
