Promising to address “the division and rage at the heart of our modern world”, John Le Carré’s 25th novel is an espionage thriller ripe for our age. Following on the heels of his acclaimed and timely return, A Legacy of Spies - as well as the popular adapted revivals of The Night Manager and The Little Drummer Girl - it’s the work of a writer at the height of his powers.
Set in London in 2018, Agent Running in the Field follows a twenty-six year old solitary figure who, in a desperate attempt to resist the political turbulence swirling around him, makes connections that will take him down a very dangerous path. In his plot and characterisation le Carre is as thrilling as ever and in the way he writes about our times he proves himself, once again, to be the greatest chronicler of our age.
