A Delicate Truth - John le Carré

RRP £18.99John le Carré -  A Delicate Truth- limited number of SIGNED COPIES available at Jarrold, while stocks last!

Jarrold has a limited number of signed copies while stocks last.

Of few writers is the phrase 'he needs no introduction' so true: le Carré is one of our best known and best loved authors, with novels like The Spy Who Came In From The Cold and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy becoming modern classics, as well as translating highly successfully to film and TV. A counter-terror operation in Gibraltar against a high-value jihadist arms-buyer is the starting point of this latest novel, leading to what the Observer describes as 'a brilliant climax, with sinister deaths, casual torture, wrecked lives and shameful compromises.'
