Inhaltsangabe

A counter-terror operation, codenamed Wildlife, is being mounted in Britain's most precious colony, Gibraltar. Its purpose: to capture and abduct a high-value jihadist arms-buyer. Its authors: an ambitious Foreign Office Minister, and a private defence contractor who is also his close friend. So delicate is the operation that even the Minister's Private Secretary, Toby Bell, is not cleared for it. Suspecting a disastrous conspiracy, Toby attempts to forestall it, but is promptly posted overseas.

Three years on, summoned by Sir Christopher Probyn, retired British diplomat, to his decaying Cornish manor house, and closely watched by Probyn's daughter Emily, Toby must choose between his conscience and his duty to the Service. If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing, how can he keep silent?

John le Carre was born in 1931 and attended the universities of Bern and Oxford. He taught at Eton and served briefly in British Intelligence during the Cold War. For the last fifty years he has lived by his pen. He divides his time between London and Cornwall.

    Geschichte
    "gripping with an uncomfortable open end"

    A gripping story with and abrupt and uncomfortable open end. Towards the end of the story I became more and more sceptical about the naivety of the acting characters, taking too less precautions, while getting more and more involved in a high level cover up.

    Concerning the audio quality:
    During the first halve of the audio book I had partly problems understanding the spoken words, because of too many unfiltered hissing noises. Subjectively it got better towards the end.
