In the third year of perestroika, London publisher Barley Blair is sent a manuscript from Moscow. Exposing Russian nuclear threats as a sham, the information - if it's genuine - could shatter East-West relations. Jazz-loving, hard-drinking Blair is hardly the spymasters' idea of the perfect agent, yet they are forced to send him to Moscow.

One of the best from master spy-novelist John Le Carre, and a book which does not really grow old even though the Cold War is long past. The plotting is completely gripping, and moreover the very human questions of trust and betrayal, loyalty and divided loyalties, deception and self-deception explored here are timeless.
