Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of A Legacy of Spies. 

"A novel that beckons us beyond any and all expectations."—Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post

A counter-terrorist operation, code-named Wildlife, is being mounted on the British crown colony of Gibraltar.  Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, a private defense contractor who is also his bosom friend, and a shady American CIA operative of the evangelical far-right. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister’s personal private secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it.

Three years later, a disgraced Special Forces Soldier delivers a message from the dead. Was Operation Wildlife the success it was cracked up to be—or a human tragedy that was ruthlessly covered up? Summoned by Sir Christopher “Kit” Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house, and closely observed by Kit’s daughter, Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and duty to his Service. If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing, how can he keep silent?

Great new Le Carre

Love the British flair of spy novels that only Le Carré has truly mastered. Interesting ending that lets the reader decide. Ive read everyone of his books and hope there are more to come. Thank you Sir John!

No conclusion and nothing happens

Quick read but author talks himself in circles and leaves the barely there plot with no conclusion. Highly disappointing

Good but not Le Carre's best

Fascinating topic full of rich detail and intrigue but somehow A Delicate Truth misses the mark. It's exceptionally slow in spots. I wonder if it would translate well on film...
