Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed everywhere as a masterpiece of suspense, John le Carré's return to Africa is the story of Bruno Salvador (aka Salvo), the 25-year-old orphaned love child of an Irish missionary and a Congolese woman. Quickly rising to the top of his profession as an interpreter, Salvo is dispatched by British Intelligence to a top-secret meeting between Western financiers and East Congolese warlords, where he hears things not meant for his ears - and is forced to interpret matters never intended for his reawoken African conscience. By turns thriller, love story, and comic allegory of our times, THE MISSION SONG

Synopsis:

In his first novel set in Africa since "The Constant Gardener," le Carr, the master of the literary thriller, delivers the story of a young interpreter, who stumbles into the heart of an outrageous British plot. Now available in a tall Premium Edition.
