John Le Carre - Silverview (2nd Hand Paperback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9780241994535
The Sunday Times Bestseller.
Julian Lawndsley has renounced his high-flying job in the City for a simpler life running a bookshop in a small English seaside town.
But after only a couple of months into his new career, Edward, a Polish emigre, shows up at his door with a very keen interest in Julian's new enterprise and a lot of knowledge about his family history. And when a letter turns up at the door of a spy chief in London warning him of a dangerous leak, the investigations lead him to this quiet town by the sea . . .
Silverview is the mesmerising story of an encounter between innocence and experience and between public duty and private morals.
In this last complete masterwork from the greatest chronicler of our age, John le Carre asks what you owe to your country when you no longer recognise it.

''Le Carre at his finest' - Mick Herron, Guardian.

'A towering writer' - Margaret Atwood.
'A literary giant' - Stephen King.
