The Cape Times says of his latest book, Dead-End Road , ‘It stands head and shoulders among the many crime novels we are c...more


John le Carré, Coronet Books (1996)

I picked up a tatty copy of the Tailor of Panama because I'd been feeling rather ashamed for never having read a John le Carré novel. And reading just a few pages, I immediately knew I'd like the rest of it.
