I have become a big fan of le Carre's more recent novels, the angry political ones as other reviewers have described them, but this one doesn't measure up. The main character is a fascinating guy but he is too naive and gullible (at least for le Carre's world). You have the feeling after he is betrayed several times that he just needs to realize that no one will listen to him or protect him. Of course, perhaps he does realize this but it's too late. In any case, I think he should have realized it before it was too late.
