    Inhaltsangabe

    An instant New York Times best seller!

    In his last completed novel, John le Carré turns his focus to the world that occupied his writing for the past sixty years - the secret world itself.

    Named a most anticipated book of the fall by the Associated Press, TIME, People, Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, AARP, The Millions, Lit Hub, Thrillist, and more

    Julian Lawndsley has renounced his high-flying job in the city for a simpler life running a bookshop in a small English seaside town. But only a couple of months into his new career, Julian’s evening is disrupted by a visitor. Edward, a Polish émigré living in Silverview, the big house on the edge of town, seems to know a lot about Julian’s family and is rather too interested in the inner workings of his modest new enterprise.

    When a letter turns up at the door of a spy chief in London warning him of a dangerous leak, the investigations lead him to this quiet town by the sea....

    Silverview is the mesmerizing story of an encounter between innocence and experience and between public duty and private morals. In his inimitable voice John le Carré, the greatest chronicler of our age, seeks to answer the question of what we truly owe to the people we love.

    Kritikerstimmen

    One of:

    TIME's "34 Most Anticipated Books of Fall 2021"

    The Guardian's "50 biggest books of autumn 2021"

    Toronto Star's "35 books you need to know about in Fall 2021"

    Yahoo’s “20 buzzy books for Fall 2021”

    “A fitting requiem for the career of the man who brought a new level of complexity and humanity to espionage fiction.” (Booklist, starred review)

    “[In Silverview,] le Carré plays out revelations about [the characters] slowly and teasingly, and, in the end, they’re as damning as you could wish. The real drama, however, is in the present, where all the characters are hopelessly intertwined and compromised by their loves and loyalties, none of them innocent.... The author’s last few novels have been increasingly valedictory, but this one is truly haunted by intimations of mortality.” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review)
