    Description

    The beautiful Tessa Quayle is murdered near Lake Turkana in northern Kenya, the birthplace of mankind. And her putative African lover and travelling companion has vanished from the scene of the crime. Tessa’s husband, a career diplomat and amateur gardener at the British High Commission in Nairobi, sets out on a personal odyssey in pursuit of the killers and their motive. On his way he meets terror, violence and conspiracy, but his greatest discovery is the woman he barely had time to love.

    Entertaining

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I found it interesting, particularly because it took part in a country which is dear to my heart.
    I find le Carre books quite difficult to follow at times. Even though they don't adopt the now popular editing method of jumping ahead in time then back again, which adds pace and anticipation to a novel, but can also be confusing.

    If you’ve listened to books by John le Carré before, how does this one compare?

    This is only the second book of his that I have listened to, and I did enjoy it.

    Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I thought he did a splendid job of the narration,

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not at all. I paced it over about 4 days, which was just fine.

    Any additional comments?

    I found it a little drawn out and it probably took a little too long to reach the vital moment of exposing the full plot and motivation. I feel that clever editing could have improved it, but that was fundamentally the old school of writing. Or perhaps thats just the way le Carre wanted it.
