The Mission Song

by John le Carre
£8.99   paperback  Hodder and Stoughton (2007)

The Mission Song by John le Carre Bruno Salvador has worked on clandestine missions before. A highly skilled interpreter, he is not stranger to the Official Secrets Act. But this is the first time he has been asked to change his identity - and, worse still, his clothes - in service of his country.
 
Whisked to a remote island to interpret a top-secret conference between no-name financiers and Congolese warlords, Salvo's excitement is only heightened by memories of the night before he left London, and his life-changing encounter with a beautiful nurse named Hannah.
 
Exit suddenly, the unassuming, happily married man Salvo believed himself to be. Enter in his place, the pseudonymous Brian Sinclar: spy, lover - and perhaps, even, hero.

"Full of energy, rage and great humour. All the qualities for which le Carre's" fiction has been admired - his descriptive powers, his electrifying dialogue, his cynicism in the presence of corporate greed and government power - are visible in The Mission Song. That this great English novelist continues to produce work of this calibre with such frequency is simply astonishing.
