The Little Drummer Girl

Now a BBC series




Enthralling and thought-provoking, The Little Drummer Girl is le Carré's only spy novel set in the Middle East, now in giftable hardback

Charlie, a brilliant and beautiful young actress, is lured into 'the theatre of the real' by an Israeli intelligence officer. Forced to play her ultimate role, she is plunged into a deceptive and delicate trap set to ensnare an elusive Palestinian terrorist.

The Little Drummer Girl is a thrilling, deeply moving and courageous novel of our times.
