Review: The Tailor of Panama

The Tailor of PanamaThe Tailor of Panama by John le Carré

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My first le Carré, and although I understand that it's not his typical work, I can still understand why he's not only popular but well respected. This is a writer who is a master of the slow but never boring reveal. The setting is incredibly detailed without ever resorting to information dump, and every character breaths. If only the satire hadn't become so predictable, this would have been a really good book.
