From premier spy novelist John le Carre, a magnificent thriller, a love story and an ethical puzzle for our time.
We are in the third year of perestroika and glasnost. The place is Moscow. The man is Barley; a derelict, English publisher with a passion for jazz and a penchant for booze, who visits the Moscow Book Fair.
The woman is Katya: a beautiful Russian with a mission to mankind and access to some of the hottest defense intelligence to come out of the Soviet Union in years. It source: a disillusioned and desperate Russian physicist who wants Barley to publish the secrets . . but the British Secret Service and the CIA have other ideas.
