At a small British trade fair in Moscow, a message of global importance is made up of three very fragile human links: a Soviet physicist (code name Bluebird) burdened with a secret knowledge; a beautiful young Russian woman to whom the papers are entrusted; and Barley Blair, a bewildered English publisher pressed into service by British Intelligence to ferret out the source of the document. A magnificent story of love, betrayal, and courage. The Russia house catches history in the act.--Back cover.
One of his best!

Le Carre is not just a spy writer, he is a phenomenal storyteller who happens to write about people involved in espionage. This is a poignant love story, set in Russia and England just at the end of the Cold War, and it is probably the most uplifting piece of work this author has ever written.
