Review

Rating: 8

A couple vacationing in Antigua cross paths with a Russian money-launderer named Dima. He is himself there with family and criminal cohorts following the killing of his number two man and wants to buy his security trading on the information he has in order to get his family safely to England. The narrative and characters are Le Carre in fine form with overtones of Graham Greene’s work, capturing the post-Cold War espionage game with compelling grace.
