John Le Carre’s Agent Running in the Field asks a retiring “20th century” British agent facing a Brexit world, where it is no longer clear whose allegiance Britain serves -- except, of course, Le Carre’s often unpleasant Americans -- to make difficult choices.— Neighbor Pick by David from North Sarasota
A new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author John le Carré
Set in London in 2018, Agent Running in the Field follows a twenty-six year old solitary figure who, in a desperate attempt to resist the new political turbulence swirling around him, makes connections that will take him down a very dangerous path. In his plot and characterization le Carré is as thrilling as ever and in the way he writes about our times he proves himself, once again, to be the greatest chronicler of our age.
