When his activist wife is found raped and murdered in a remote part of Kenya, her ineffectual husband, a career diplomat stationed in Nairobi, seeks out those responsible. Many le Carré fans found this new opus a disappointment, but we occasional visitors to his domain of espionage and sleuthing appreciate his elegant style, rich characterization, and Graham Greenish exploration of moral ambiguity. He reads as well as he writes. His sonorous voice and nuanced delivery perfectly complement his authorial personality. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
