Dust jacket lightly bumped to extremities. B&W maps. Harry Pendel is a British expatriate living in Panama City and running his own successful bespoke tailoring business, Pendel and Braithwaite. His wife and children are unaware that almost every detail of his life is fabricated. In reality, Harry Pendel is an ex-convict who learned tailoring in prison, but now he dresses the Panamanian president, politicos, crooks, and con men. His fitting room hears more confidences than a priest's confessional. A thrilling, hilarious spy novel. Also the basis of a 2001 film starring Pierce Brosnan, Geoffrey Rush, and Jaime Lee Curtis.

John le Carré was born in 1931. After attending the universities of Berne and Oxford, he taught at Eton and spent five years in the British Foreign Service. The Spy Who Came In from the Cold , his third book, secured him a worldwide reputation. He divides his time between England and the Continent. From the Hardcover edition.
