For nearly half a century, John le Carré’s limitless imagination has enthralled millions of readers and moviegoers around the globe. From the Cold War to the bitter fruits of colonialism to unrest in the Middle East, he has reinvented the spy novel again and again. Now, le Carré makes his Viking debut with a stunning tour-de-force that only a craftsman of his caliber could pen. As menacing and flawlessly paced as The Little Drummer Girl and as morally complex as The Constant Gardener, Our Kind of Traitor is signature le Carré.

Perry and Gail are idealistic and very much in love when they splurge on a tennis vacation at a posh beach resort in Antigua. But the charm begins to pall when a big-time Russian money launderer enlists their help to defect. In exchange for amnesty, Dima is ready to rat out his vory (Russian criminal brotherhood) compatriots and expose corruption throughout the so-called legitimate financial and political worlds. Soon, the guileless couple finds themselves pawns in a deadly endgame whose outcome will be determined by the victor of the British Secret Service’s ruthless internecine battles.

Quotes & Awards

  • “John Le Carré did not invent the spy thriller, but there is no doubt that over the past half century, he has perfected it in ways that his predecessors can only imagine. With this new release, the 79-year-old master spins another gripping tale about international skulduggery.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “One of our great writers of moral ambiguity, a tireless explorer of that darkly contradictory no-man’s land…Our Kind of Traitor brims with deftly drawn characters navigating a treacherously uncertain landscape that seems ripped from yesterday’s papers and recreated with an absolutely certain hand.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “Part vintage John le Carré and part Alfred Hitchcock…The suspense in Our Kind of Traitor is genuine and nerve-racking.”

    New York Times

  • “Le Carré ratchets up the tension step-by-step until the sad, inevitable end. His most accessible work in years, this novel shows once again why his name is the one to which all others in the field are compared.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A USA Today Bestseller
  • A 2010 Washington Post Best Book for Fiction

    " Entertaining. Late le Carre is like late Woody Allen. He puts young people in the story, but he doesn't understand young people. "

    " Still as sharp as ever, but I found myself meandering through the midsection of this novel. As a huge fan of le Carre's writing, I still found it enjoyable and timely. "
