Waterstones Says

Characteristically taut and incisively written, the final completed novel from the unassailable master of espionage finds an independent bookshop owner caught between the sinister attentions of a Polish emigré and the dogged suspicions of a British spy chief.

In Silverview John le Carré turns his focus to the world that  occupied his writing for the past sixty years – the secret world itself.

Julian Lawndsley has renounced his high-flying job in the City for a simpler life running a bookshop in a small English seaside town. But only a couple of months into his new career, Julian’s evening is disrupted by a visitor. Edward, a Polish émigré living in Silverview, the big house on the edge of town, seems to know a lot about Julian’s family and is rather too interested in the inner workings of his modest new enterprise.
 
When a letter turns up at the door of a spy chief in London warning him of a dangerous leak, the investigations lead him to this quiet town by the sea...

Silverview is the mesmerising story of an encounter between innocence and experience and between public duty and private morals. In his inimitable voice John le Carré, the greatest chronicler of our age, seeks to answer the question of what we truly owe to the people we love.
