Notes:
Nat, a 47 year-old veteran of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, believes his years as an agent runner are over. He is back in London with his wife, the long-suffering Prue.

This story feels simpler and more personal than previous offerings from this author but it has the same insight into the Service and the British state with all its foibles. We know that Ed's and Nat's views about Brexit and the current state of world politics are le Carre's own. Nat is definitely one of the good guys. This novel is beautifully crafted from start to finish.
