It was the Bad Godesberg incident that gave the proof, thought the German authorities had no earthly means of knowing this. (from the first line)
" You want to catch the lion, first you tether the goat. "
On holiday in Mykonos, Charlie wants only sunny days and a brief escape from England''s bourgeois dreariness. Then a handsome stranger lures the aspiring actress away from her pals-but his intentions are far from romantic. Joseph is an Israeli intelligence officer, and Charlie has been wooed to flush out the leader of a Palestinian terrorist group responsible for a string of deadly bombings. Still uncertain of her own allegiances, she debuts in the role of a lifetime as a double agent in the "theatre of the real."
Haunting and deeply atmospheric, John le Carr?''s "The Little Drummer Girl" is a virtuoso performance and a powerful examination of morality and justice.

Author Bio
John Le Carre
Born David Cornwell in Poole, Dorset, John Le Carr? attended Berne University in Switzerland and Lincoln College, Oxford, graduating in 1956 with a B.A. in modern languages. After tutoring at Eton for two years, he went to work for the British Foreign Service in Bonn and Hamburg from 1959 to 1964. Le Carr? is best known for his brooding international spy, the ironically named George Smiley. In fact, Smiley is a dark, disturbed agent mired in the lonely, cutthroat world of espionage where the line between good and evil is often blurred, and sometimes erased. Le Carr? pulls no punches in depicting the stark, inhuman nature of international intrigue. He first gained fame for the classic thriller THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD (1963), which featured Smiley in a small, supporting role. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, many people predicted that Le Carr?'s career would die with the Cold War. But Le Carr? proved them wrong, finding newly relevant topics in the post-Cold-War world.
