About this book
A brand new novel from the bestselling and much acclaimed le Carre, this is a furiously paced story of moral dilemma, bold action and unexpected love. It moves between Gibraltar in 2008 and Cornwall in 2011, as a disgraced Special Forces soldier delivers a message from the dead which forces a private secretary to choose between his conscience and duty to his Service. After the success of the 2012 adaptation of "Tinker, Soldier, Spy", a new film of "A Most Wanted Man" is due out in the autumn.
A counter-terror operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted in Britain's most precious colony. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, and a private defence contractor who is also his close friend.
