The next book in the Time Challenge complete...full thoughts here:

I was surprised by how little action there is in this book; most of the tension comes from people speaking (read: deceiving) to each other. After a deliberately-paced first half, the second half is a flurry of crosses and double crosses, deceptions and misinformation, begging the reader to start over to see how le Carre pulled it off.
