Synopses & Reviews
A BBC Radio fullcast dramatization of John le Carres gripping tale of espionage and double dealing. Missing: one junior diplomat and 43 of the British Embassys most confidential files. The timing is alarmingly significant: with neo-Nazi riots and radical student demonstrations, the threat to Germanys security is all too apparent. Britains own Alan Turner is sent in, with instructions to tread carefully at all costs. But will he find the missing man and the files before the political situation erupts?
