The British Embassy in Bonn, the city chosen as West Germany’s capital after World War II, is up in arms. Her Majesty’s financially troubled government is seeking admission to Europe’s Common Market just as anti-British factions are rising to power in Germany. Rioters are demanding reunification, and the last thing the Crown can afford is a scandal. Then Leo Harting, an embassy nobody, goes missing with a case full of confidential files. London sends Alan Turner to control the damage, but he soon realizes neither side really wants Leo found alive.

Set against the threat of a German-Soviet alliance, John le Carré’s A Small Town in Germany is a superb chronicle of Cold War paranoia and political compromise.
