The Mission Song

The Mission Song - John le Carré A well plotted, engaging, and wonderfully populated thriller that explores the at times self-defeating goals and complexities of African democracies, while underscoring the backhanded practices of Western agencies to undermine individuals, and nations, who stand in their way.Le Carré's "The Mission Song," seems better crafted, clearer, and more engaging in many ways than the near-perfect "Constant Gardener." This is a brilliant novel of espionage, love, and sacrifice that has something to say, too, about our post-9/11 tactics. I would recommend this novel to anyone.
