Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A classic spy novel from master of suspense John le Carre--reissued in time with the BBC and AMC miniseries, directed by Susanne Bier and starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie.

     On a bleak January night at the outbreak of the Gulf War, Mr. Richard Onslow Roper, a very special visitor, arrives with his entourage at a Zurich hotel. The night manager, Jonathan Pine, recognizes him immediately, but prays that the identification is not mutual.

     Suddenly drawn into a new world of espionage, Pine is soon launched on an undercover mission to destroy Roper and an empire built on an unholy alliance between the intelligence community and the secret arms trade. From the cliffs of west Cornwall to northern Quebec, from the Caribbean to the jungles of post-Noriega Panama, his quarry is no less than worst man in the world.

     In what is perhaps John le Carré's greatest work to date, The Night Manager brings to life a whole new era of intrigue, brilliantly conceived by the undisputed master of the genre.
