Harry Pendel, tailor and spy, decides to take matters into his own hands by deceiving everyone and masterminding a scheme so brilliant that his life careens into a deadly game of politics and deception, in a humorous and fast-paced thriller.
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. His secret mission is two pronged: to keep a watchful eye on the political manoeuvrings leading up to the American handover of the Panama Canal on 31 December 1999 and to secure for himself the immense private fortune that has until now churlishly eluded him.
"Le Carré shows what an extraordinarily witty writer he can be, with a true feeling for the farcical." (The Sunday Times)
