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. The conversational language, the peppy tongue-in-cheek descriptions – here was a confident writer patient enough to allow a good story to unravel on its...

Richard Kunzmann It's definitely one to read, if you like crime and don't mind a bit of gore. The important thing about this book is it's flair, the sexual tension between the main characters, and above all the wicked sense of humour. The police procedural stuff is just window dressing.
