The Night Manager by John le Carre
  

Lovereading view...

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. This is a special edition of le Carre's first post-Cold War novel, to tie in with the new major BBC series starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, with a new afterword by the author.

If you like John le Carre you might also like to read books by Frederick Forsyth, Daniel Silva and Charles Cumming.

Synopsis

The Night Manager by John le Carre

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.

Also in the episode that aired 13 March John le Carre himself had a cameo ... did you spot it. If not check out the video clip below.
