In the same leftish political slant as all his recent novels, Le Carre's "A Most Wanted Man" is a nice read, thanks for the consistency JlC! Set in Hamburg, where a few of the 9/11 gang lived, we meet a British/German banker, a pro-bono lady lawyer and a mysterious half-Chechen Muslim refugee. Unbeknownst to these three are the watchful eyes of an eager to please German Intelligence, the usual British spies and eventually, the Americans make an entrance. Can anything good come of it for the three? Does it ever in a JlC novel? A minor point, but no North American, particulary an American, would ever use the term "gaol". The spies are looking to manipulate, or are they? Le Carre's world is shades of grey and seems to advocate another way to view Muslims. In the end, he needs to send his message and slams the US heavy-handed approach.
