John le Carré takes us on yet another gripping adventure filled with all the suspense and tension we have come to expect from the British bestselling author. The novel is a tale of espionage in the German city of Bonn, West Germany’s capital during the 1960s. It explores the terrifying threat of Nazis coming back into power in the country, as anxiety and alarm begins to grip the nation.
This audiobook on CD and MP3 is an unabridged version of one of Le Carre’s best stories. We are introduced to Alan Turner from England who arrives in Bonn to probe the disappearance of a British Embassy officer Leo Harting. Harting’s disappearance is not the embassy’s main concern, as the files that went missing with him are far more important to them than their missing officer. And understandably so as accusations of espionage and murder begin to come to light.
John le Carré takes us on a journey of fear and vexation as Nazis are exposed for their heinous murderous crimes and political embarrassment threatens to destroy one man’s attempts to bring the guilty parties to justice.
With a running time of three hours, star of Man at the Top Kenneth Haigh brings the character of Alan Turner alive in this dramatic and explosive tale available on CD audiobook.
