Two young lovers find themselves in the darkening basement of an anonymous house in Bloomsbury. In the same room sit two members of Britain's intelligence service. And they want information.

The couple, Perry and Gail, have just returned from holiday in the Caribbean where they met the mysterious Dima, a Russian millionaire in fear for his life. The Russian thinks that only the unlikely figure of Perry can save him. And Dima has cash - and he is prepared to pay.

Their meeting will propel Perry and Gail on a terrifying journey from London to Paris and on to a safe house deep in the Swiss Alps. For, when there is that much money at stake, and a British government that needs it that badly, certain sacrifices, even if it means a life or two, will have to be made . . .
Industry Reviews
A remarkable book by the master. Reading it is a great experience -- Henning Mankell * Daily Telegraph *
A compelling tale of deceit, dialogue and the author's own despair . . . This is a story with frenzy at its heart -- James Naughtie * Daily Telegraph *
John le Carre's bullet train of a new thriller is part vintage John le Carre and part Alfred Hitchcock . . . The author's most thrilling thriller in years * The New York Times *
If you want to know about the state of Britain today, forget the Booker shortlist. Just read John le Carre's latest thriller * Evening Standard *
Few recent plays have had dialogue as good, and few recent literary novels can boast a set of characters so vividly imagined. Our Kind of Traitor is a teasing, beguiling, masterly performance * Sunday Times *
A compelling tale of deceit, dialogue and the author's own despair John le Carre's greatest gift may be his ear, which allows him to pick up a tremor of fear in the softest voice or a false note in any exchange of words and play with them to his heart's content. He can therefore create, in dialogue, a trembling soundscape that has a pitch-perfect quality * Sunday Telegraph *
