At the start of it all, Jonathan Pine is merely the night manager at a luxury hotel. But when a single attempt to pass on information to the British authorities - about an international businessman at the hotel with suspicious dealings - backfires terribly, and people close to Pine begin to die, he commits himself to a battle against powerful forces he cannot begin to imagine.

In a chilling tale of corrupt intelligence agencies, billion-dollar price tags and the truth of the brutal arms trade, John le Carre creates a claustrophobic world in which no one can be trusted.

About the Author

John le Carre was born in 1931. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a worldwide reputation, which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People. His recent novels include A Most Wanted Man, Our Kind of Traitor and A Delicate Truth.

    Comments about The Night Manager:

    This edition contains an afterword by le Carre in reference to the recent production of a television movie based on his 1990's novel of brutality, corruption and the arms-trade. He expresses more approval than disapproval for the adaptation though he notes the considerable changes and deletions in the film, from the original text.

      Comments about The Night Manager:

      If you're a LeCarre fan then this is not another Smiley. But it's pretty good. Definitely worth buying, and maybe rereading. An absorbing page turner.

      Comments about The Night Manager:

      Wanted to compare the book to the BBC series (which was excellent television). LeCarre is a terrific author and the screen play has been well adapted to the book. Some of the "old time" spy language was a little difficult but probably quite authentic. Can't wait to finish it and move on

      When I was under house arrest I was helped by the books of John le Carre ... they were a journey into the wider world ... These were the journeys that made me feel that I was not really cut off from the rest of humankind -- Aung San Suu Kyi One of those writers who will be read a century from now -- Robert Harris He can communicate emotion, from sweating fear to despairing love, with terse and compassionate conviction * Sunday Times (on 'The Spy Who Came in from the Cold') * Return of the master . . . Having plumbed the devious depths of the Cold War, le Carre has done it again for our nasty new age * The Times (on 'Our Kind of Traitor') *
