Audio Book Summary

You want to catch the lion, first you tether the goat.

On holiday in Mykonos, Charlie wants only sunny days and a brief escape from England’s bourgeois dreariness. Then a handsome stranger lures the aspiring actress away from her pals—but his intentions are far from romantic. Joseph is an Israeli intelligence officer, and Charlie has been wooed to flush out the leader of a Palestinian terrorist group responsible for a string of deadly bombings. Still uncertain of her own allegiances, she debuts in the role of a lifetime as a double agent in the “theatre of the real.”
 
Haunting and deeply atmospheric, John le Carré’s The Little Drummer Girl is a virtuoso performance and a powerful examination of morality and justice.
 
With an introduction by the author.

    That description by the publisher, 'haunting and atmospheric,' is maybe more true here than for any other of John LeCarre's novels. For anyone who has read his books and found his latent (or overt) sexism irritating, Charlie will be an invigorating character. This has all the shadowy intrigue the author is famous for- an anti-Fleming in which spy craft is less glamorous than it is disdainful, less active than it is manipulative, a necessary evil to a better end.
