A Most Wanted Man: Book summary and reviews of A Most Wanted Man by John Le Carre
A Most Wanted Man Summary
New spies with new loyalties, old spies with old ones; terror as the new mantra; decent people wanting to do good but caught in the moral maze; all the sound, rational reasons for doing the inhuman thing; the recognition that we cannot safely love or pity and remain good "patriots" -- this is the fabric of John le Carré's fiercely compelling and current novel A Most Wanted Man.
A Most Wanted Man Reviews
"[N]one of the characters is as memorable as George Smiley or Magnus Pym. Still, even a lesser le Carré effort is far above the common run of thrillers." - Publishers Weekly.

John Le Carre Author Biography
John Le Carré is the pen name of David Cornwell. Cornwell was born in Poole,
Dorset (in the South-West of England) in 1931. His father, Ronnie, made
and lost his fortune a number of times due to elaborate confidence tricks and
schemes which landed him in prison on at least one occasion. This, according to
Cornwell, was one of the factors that led to his fascination with secrets.
His father was also the inspiration for the lead character in 'The
Honourable Schoolboy' (1977).
