Harry Pendel is the charismatic proprietor of Pendel and Braithwaite Limitada of Panama, through whose doors everyone who is anyone in Central America passes.
Andrew Osnard, mysterious and fleshy, is a spy.

Another great story, another great narration!

I cannot get enough of le Carré at the moment, we probably all know some of those that have been made into films and the Tailor of Panama is one of those great films but I would urge anyone who knows the films to listen to the books. Great story as usual, twists and turns, characters are excellent and Michael Jayston was made to narrate these stories, faultless and keeps you listening.

Brilliant political thriller.

Le Carre on top form - an angry and vivid portrayal of British collusion, high and low, in a Panamanian revolution. Brilliantly read by Michael Jayston - the perfect interpreter of Le Carre's moral fury.
