Publisher's Summary

The British Embassy in Bonn is up in arms. Her Majesty's financially troubled government is seeking admission to Europe's Common Market just as anti-British factions are rising to power in Germany. Rioters are demanding reunification, and the last thing the Crown can afford is a scandal. Then Leo Harting - an embassy nobody - goes missing with a case full of confidential files. London sends Alan Turner to control the damage, but he soon realises that neither side really wants Leo found - alive.

Great story, real tension and excellently narrated

Le Carré at his best. A gripping plot with a bombastic central character brought to life by Jayston's entransing tones.

Have a listen, you won't be disappointed.
