A Most Wanted Man

A Most Wanted Man by John le Carré

Finished: Feb 8
Rating: B+

Le Carre’s latest novel takes on extraordinary rendition and the global “war on terror”. The ending on this one is psychologically brutal, so be warned. In the classic Le Carre style the focus is more on the problems in the intelligence bureaucracy and the interactions between the American, British, and Germany intelligence services than the interactions or development of the main characters. Overall not his best ever, but a solid Le Carre spy story. Makes me want to read more of the older works again!
