John le Carré × 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Þ A Delicate Truth Ate wars 2011 A disgraced Special Forces soldier who took part in Wildlife delivers a message from the dead The worlds of Toby Bell and Kit Probyn collide If the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing at what point do these two good men become guilty bystanders. What can I say about the Yoda of spy masters I haven t already said That five stars aren t nearly enoughNo spoilers here This is the behind the scenes story of a small anti terrorist black op that might or might not have happened Problem is its very existence even as a plan is so politically incorrect as to be a profound embarrassment if anyone involved decides to break silence and go public with the few facts they know So the trendy topic of whistle blowing is very much at issueI find two things remarkable about this narrative First the dialogue is almost entirely and deliberately off point than in any other Le Carre book I ve read The words are about everything but the topic at hand Everyone speaks not just in code but in hints and innuendos and metaphors It s annoying And real And perhaps an angry commentary on a societal lack of not only frankness and honesty but also an unwillingness to face any real facts at allSecond you won t have a clear idea of who the main character is until fairly far along He will grow on you as he will become bolder in his own estimation of himself But he s a bureaucrat as are most of the rest of them and in many respects lackluster Totally absent are the mythic proportions of James Bond And he has nothing like the cunning wit or the cleverness of George SmileyHe does however eventually realize he has a conscience and a loyalty to ideals that are both naive and recklessVery much about today and much to learn if in those cryptic conversations you learn to listen between the lines
