520    Set in London in 2018, Agent Running in the Field follows 
       a twenty-six year old solitary figure who, in a desperate 
       attempt to resist the political turbulence swirling around
       him, makes connections that will take him down a dangerous
       path. In his plot and characterization le Carré is as 
       thrilling as ever and in the way he writes about our times
       he proves himself, once again, to be the greatest 
       chronicler of our age. 
520    Nat, a 47 year-old veteran of Britain’s Secret 
       Intelligence Service, believes his years as an agent 
       runner are over. He is back in London with his wife, the 
       long-suffering Prue. But with the growing threat from 
       Moscow Centre, the office has one more job for him. Nat is
       to take over The Haven, a defunct substation of London 
       General with a rag-tag band of spies. The only bright 
       light on the team is young Florence, who has her eye on 
       Russia Department and a Ukrainian oligarch with a finger 
       in the Russia pie.  Nat is not only a spy, he is a 
       passionate badminton player. His regular Monday evening 
       opponent is half his age: the introspective and solitary 
       Ed. Ed hates Brexit, hates Trump and hates his job at some
       soulless media agency. And it is Ed, of all unlikely 
       people, who will take Prue, Florence and Nat himself down 
       the path of political anger that will ensnare them all. 
       Agent Running in the Field is a chilling portrait of our 
       time, now heartbreaking, now darkly humorous, told to us 
       with unflagging tension by the greatest chronicler of our 
       age.
