Single & Single

Single & Single

by JohnleCarré (Author)


A corporate lawyer from the House of Single & Single is shot dead in cold blood on a Turkish hillside. A children's entertainer in Devon is hauled to his local bank late at night to explain a monumental influx of cash. A Russian freighter is arrested in the Black Sea. A celebrated London financier has disappeared into thin air. A British customs officer is on a trail of corruption and murder. The logical connection of these events is one of the many pleasures of this extraordinary new novel of love, deceit and the triumph of humanity. SINGLE & SINGLE is a thrilling journey of the human heart - intimate, magical and riotous, revealing le Carre at the height of his dramatic and creative powers.

The finest imaginative social historian of the post-war years * Times Literary Supplement *
Peter Millar, THE TIMES
In his maturity, he has done for popular fiction what the young Marlon Brando did for Hollywood ... SINGLE & SINGLE is an adventure that takes us to the ends of the earth via the rich but often barren landscape of the human heart * Times *
We sit back and enjoy ourselves, knowing that we are the hands of a master...To say that le Carre is an artist with words is neither pedantry nor platitude
a superb new novel....It feels, from the first page, like a violin string stretched taut
Philip Hensher, MAIL ON SUNDAY
SINGLE & SINGLE is a highly accomplished piece of work, one of le Carre's best recent novels
Tiger Single is a wonderful creation... he is rather likeable in his arrogance...SINGLE & SINGLE does beautifully the madness, the greatness, the vodka, the dark heart of Russia.
