  • Rambling

    I found this spy story hard to follow and rambling then there was the ending.

  • Not worth it

    Disjointed storytelling. Expected more from Le Carré.

  • subtlety unmasking of past deeds

    Published posthumously, Silverware maybe John Le Carré's final spy novel. Julian Lawndsley, a former city trader moves to a quiet British seaside town to open a bookshop. He is befriended by an old friend of his late father, who enthusiastically helps him to set up the “Republic of Literature” in the unused basement of his shop. So begins a tale of friendship, trust and betrayal with all the usual questions of interconnections, spy craft subtlety and unmasking of past deeds. Whilst quintessential Le Carré storytelling, unfortunately it is more novella size and somewhat truncated but still has gravitas. So, overall a four-star rating and a fitting tribute to the original and master spy craft icon - vale John Le Carré.

    Thanks for your feedback!
