I agree with autnagrag, I was expecting this to be John Le Carre's novel, and it is an abridged radio show. I am not commenting on the quality of the radio show. I was disappointed it was not the novel I was led to expect.

Something is wrong here. This is probably a radio play, severely abridged. Other readings of the unabridged text of the book the author wrote are 6 or 7 hours in duration. This one is three. Be aware.
