Russia House is a espionage thriller set in the Cold War between England, East/West Germany and Russia. It is see from Palffrey's point of view. It is slow paced but does have some pageturning moments. For the rest there are a lot of digression and monologue.

The Secret Pilgrim is again Cold War spy from the point of view of Ned, which is also present in the Russia House where he is a passive background figure who seldom speaks. The S. Pilgrim is rather Ned's story. the writing here is terrible.

Read "The Russia House" but haven't gotten around to the other books in this collection yet.

I loved the methodical building of tension and elegant prose in this book. You can tell that Le Carre has seen some things in his time.
