Read by John le Carre.
'The Germans mustn't know. Not on any account. They mustn't know he's gone; they mustn't know we're looking for him; they mustn't know there's been a leak.'
The missing man: Harting, refugee background, a Junior Something in the British Embassy in Bonn. The missing files: forty-three of them, all Confidential or above. The timing: appalling and probably not accidental; radical students and neo-Nazis rioting; critical negotiations in Brussels.
London's security officer, Alan Turner, is sent to Bonn to locate the missing man and files as Germany's past, present and future threaten to collide in a nightmare in violence.
