It’s always intriguing to hear an author deliver the voices and intonations he or she intended during the writing process. John le Carré takes the listener through the story of Issa, a Muslim man who suddenly appears in Hamburg, Germany. Through his lawyer, Issa requests money from what turns out to be a bank's hidden account. As lawyer and banker work out the dicey details, the man becomes a priority to Western spies who are on the watch for terrorist activity. Le Carré brings a calm tone to his story. While the plot is somewhat convoluted at times, le Carré's narration remains adept. M.B. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
