9780141393018: The Night Manager (Penguin Modern Classics)

In his first new novel since The Secret Pilgrim, le Carre brilliantly creates a new era of intrigue where the rules forged in the Cold War are put to even more terrifying use. It is the world of illegal arms dealers and drug smugglers, whose unfathomable ruthlessness is matched only by their limitless hunger for unlimited wealth.
