Description

The British Embassy in Bonn is up in arms. Her Majesty's financially troubled government is seeking admission to Europe's Common Market just as anti-British factions are rising to power in Germany. Rioters are demanding reunification, and the last thing the Crown can afford is a scandal. Then Leo Harting—an embassy nobody—goes missing with a case full of confidential files. London sends Alan Turner to control the damage, but he soon realizes that neither side really wants Leo found—alive. Set against the threat of a German-Soviet alliance, John le Carré's A Small Town in Germany is a superb chronicle of Cold War paranoia and political compromise.

A Small Town in Germany
fullDescription

The British Embassy in Bonn is up in arms. Her Majesty's financially troubled government is seeking admission to Europe's Common Market just as anti-British factions are rising to power in Germany. Rioters are demanding reunification, and the last thing the Crown can afford is a scandal. Then Leo Harting—an embassy nobody—goes missing with a case full of confidential files. London sends Alan Turner to control the damage, but he soon realizes that neither side really wants Leo found—alive. Set against the threat of a German-Soviet alliance, John le Carré's A Small Town in Germany is a superb chronicle of Cold War paranoia and political compromise.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: In the late 1960s in Bonn, the small capital of West Germany, the disappearance of a low-level officer in the British embassy coincides with the sudden loss of secret files. When Alan Turner arrives from London to investigate, his sloppy scrutiny is met with hostility from Rawley Bradfield, the head of embassy security. Michael Jayston's rich, serious voice provides suitable gravitas and a crisp pace for this Cold War novel, written with classic style by the consummate spy master John le CarrÄ. Jayston employs a subtle accent for powerful German bureaucrats, and classy refinement to depict a former Nazi leader. But his straight reading of the leading male British characters creates confusion, especially in the conclusion's intense dialogue, when it's unclear which man is speaking. N.M.C.
