'With A Delicate Truth; le Carre has in a sense come home. And it's a splendid homecoming . . . the novel is the most satisfying; subtle and compelling of his recent oeuvre' The Times A counter-terror operation; codenamed Wildlife; is being mounted in Britain's most precious colony; Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister's Private Secretary; Toby Bell; is not cleared for it. Suspecting a disastrous conspiracy; Toby attempts to forestall it; but is promptly posted overseas. Three years on; summoned by Sir Christopher Probyn; retired British diplomat; to his decaying Cornish manor house; and closely watched by Probyn's daughter Emily; Toby must choose between his conscience and his duty to the Service. If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing; how can he keep silent? __________________ 'No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times; from the Second World War to the 'War on Terror'' Guardian 'The master of the modern spy novel returns . . . John le Carre was never a spy-turned-writer; he was a writer who found his canvas in espionage' Daily Mail 'A brilliant climax; with sinister deaths; casual torture; wrecked lives and shameful compromises' Observer
