Abandoned by his parents, Bruno Salvador has long looked for guidance. He found it in Mr. Anderson of British Intelligence. Working for Anderson in a clandestine facility, Salvo (as he's known) translates intercepted phone calls, bugged recordings, and snatched voice mail messages. When Anderson sends him to a mysterious island to interpret during a secret conference, Bruno thinks he is helping Britain--but then he hears something he should not have.

    " I am a huge John Le Carre fan, but this book left me feeling kind of empty. I just don't have the attention span to read a novel where most of the plot takes place in a meeting/conference: honestly I have to do that so much for work that it makes me sleepy just thinking about it. There is nothing suspenseful or intense about a meeting - no matter what the topic is. Especially not one that lasts for 200 pages. Plus, at the end, after slogging through the entire thing and suffering with the characters and getting to care about their cause - the entire thing let me down. The anticlimactic nature of the ending really made me question whether Le Carre has become too disillusioned to write successful spy stories anymore. I was left holding the book and asking, "is that really it???" "

    " I am listening to the audio version. It's very cool because the story is told 1st person POV and the reader has the exact accent you would expect of the character. "

    " This book is slow going for most of the way. It picks up speed and interest in about the last third of the book. Not his best work. "
