Product description

Review

A fine piece of storytelling. It is a neat, compact, slow-burning tale with just the right amount of twisting and turning and misdirection. Divided loyalties, uncertain motives, Russian agents, bureaucratic infighting, jaded spies, tatty offices - all of the things you want and expect from a high-quality le Carré thriller are here ― The Times

A very classy entertainment about political ideals and deception . . . laced with fury at the senseless vandalism of Brexit and of Trump. Le Carré is the master of the spy genre.Guardian

Le Carré delivers a tale for our times, replete with the classic seasoning of betrayal, secret state shenanigans and sad-eyed human frailty, all baked into an oven-hot contemporary thriller . . . Agent Running in the Field is right on the money, in psychology as much as politics, a demonstration of the British spy thriller at its unputdownable bestRobert McCrum, Observer

As ingeniously structured as any of le Carré's fiction, skilfully misdirecting the reader for much of the time ― Evening Standard

A masterpiece Mick Herron, TLS

Master of the gameSunday Times

Le Carré's troubled new protagonist is developed with the author's customary skill . . . an impeccable piece of writingi

No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his timesGuardian

The master is back on form in this tale of Russian subterfuge and a middle-aged spy 's suspicious badminton partner ― The Times

A rich, beautifully written book studded with surprises. Narrative is a black art, and Le Carré is its grandmaster ― Andrew Taylor, Spectator --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

From the Inside Flap

Nat, a 47 year-old veteran of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, believes his years as an agent runner are over. He is back in London with his wife, the long-suffering Prue. But with the growing threat from Moscow Centre, the office has one more job for him. Nat is to take over The Haven, a defunct substation of London General with a rag-tag band of spies. The only bright light on the team is young Florence, who has her eye on Russia Department and a Ukrainian oligarch with a finger in the Russia pie.

Nat is not only a spy, he is a passionate badminton player. His regular Monday evening opponent is half his age: the introspective and solitary Ed. Ed hates Brexit, hates Trump and hates his job at some soulless media agency. And it is Ed, of all unlikely people, who will take Prue, Florence and Nat himself down the path of political anger that will ensnare them all. Agent Running in the Field is a chilling portrait of our time, now heartbreaking, now darkly humorous, told to us with unflagging tension by the greatest chronicler of our age.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 24 October 2019
Another excellent page turner which Le Carre has crafted as well as ever. Brilliant characters interact in his evocative way that never disappoints. Except maybe for Brexiteers and Trump fans who will not enjoy the way Le Carre vents his spleen as he witnesses the self destruction of the UK in our insane times. He has more contempt for this than the old KGB .
