The promise of his new life begins to be fulfilled as Leonard becomes a crucial part of the surveillance team, while simultaneously being initiated into a new world of love and sex by Maria, a beautiful young German woman. It is a promise that turns to horror in the course of one terrible evening – a night when Leonard Marnham learns just how much of his innocence he's willing to shed.

Review:

"The plot crackles like thin ice with dread and suspense" (Sunday Times)

"Powerful and disturbing...a tour de force" (New York Times)

"To call The Innocent a spy novel would be like calling Lord of the Flies a boy's adventure yarn...it ensure McEwan's major status" (Sunday Times)

"The sheer cleverness of the book is dazzling, and only fully to be appreciated as you turn the last page" (London Review of Books)

"Generous in scale, simple in its hideous impact... Ironically, he has celebrated the obsequies of the East-West spy thriller by writing one of the subtlest" (Mail on Sunday)

Into this divided city, wrenched between East and West, between past and present; comes twenty-five-year-old Leonard Marnham, assigned to a British-American surveillance team.
