Barley Blair vs. the World

I just finished reading "The Russia House" by John Le Carré, and although it took me way too long to read, it's highly recommended if you are looking for a summer thriller or just a great book to carry around with you as an accessory. Written by a man once in the spy game himself, I was tipped off to pick up something by Le Carré after reading this article he wrote for The New Yorker.

Quote on the inside jacket:
"Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of their way and let them have it." –Dwight D. Eisenhower
