by John le Carre - £8.99 Hodder & Stoughton (2006)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780340937723 | ISBN 10: 0340937726
Frightening, heartbreaking and exquisitely calibrated, The Constant Gardener is a profoundly moving story of a man enobled by his wife's tragic murder, and a magnificent exploration of the dark side of unbridled capitalism.
"Another classic narrative. Nobody writing today manipulates suspense better. Nobody constructs a more tantalisingly complex plot. A powerful, moving novel that stands with le Carre's best. It is, in other words, essential reading."
"Le Carre poses deep spiritual questions about the damage [the human race] has done, and continues to do, both to the planet and to itself. He does do in a page-turner which reminds us that the master storyteller of the Smiley books has lost none of his cunning."
