9780385413701: The Innocent

In a startling departure from the groundbreaking literary fiction that established his reputation, McEwan has written an impeccably constructed psychological thriller which Time magazine calls "a blueprint for the future of the genre." Film rights sold to Paramount.

From the Inside Flap:

The setting is Berlin. Into this divided city, wrenched between East and West, between past and present; comes twenty-five-year-old Leonard Marnham, assigned to a British-American surveillance team.
Though only a pawn in an international plot that is never fully revealed to him, Leonard uses his secret work to escape the bonds of his ordinary life -- and to lose his unwanted innocence.
The promise of his new life begins to be fulfilled as Leonard becomes a crucial part of the surveillance team, while simultaneously being initiated into a new world of love and sex by Maria, a beautiful young German woman. It is a promise that turns to horror in the course of one terrible evening -- a night when Leonard Marnham learns just how much of his innocence he's willing to shed.

"From the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover:

"Works as a time bob, waiting to go off... A tour de force of horror and philosophical suspense."

-- The New York Times

"So exhaustively suspenseful...it should be devoured at one sitting." -- Newsweek

"A gripping, absolutely unique story of love and suspense that you won't forget." -- Joseph Wambaugh

"McEwan...a breathtaking master...has written a blueprint for the future of the genre." -- Time
