The Little Drummer Girl moves away from the Cold War and into a new arena: Arab/Israeli terrorism. It's well constructed, and the writing is excellent as always - I didn't realise when I picked up my first le Carre book that there's a literary turn to his spy writing. He actually writes very well indeed.
The Little Drummer Girl doesn't disappoint - my only criticism, and this goes for all his work, is that he only able to write one lead female character. Charlie is every other woman he's written... but at least he writes her well!
The writing is precise, playful, insinuating, the characters beautifully evoked, the plot unfurled like a strip-tease.
Anyone who enjoys delving into the complexities of le Carre's world of spying, in part based on his own experiences of the real thing, will love this.
