With the Cold War over, British spy Larry Pettifer and his mistress Emma have fled with 30 Million pounds of the Russian’s money. Both the Brits and the Russians suspect that Larry’s handler, Tim Cranmer knows where he’s at. The only problem is that Tim has no idea where they are at, despite the forces leaning heavily on him to produce the missing pair. Now Tim must elude his pursuers and try to find his friends using the skills he has developed as a spy.
This novel is entirely forgettable. Although it is ostensibly a thriller, there is not a high thrill level here. The plot is ponderous and not particularly believable. This novel failed to meet expectations. Unless you are a diehard John LeCarre fan, I would recommend skipping this novel.
