    6. John le Carr s The Little Drummer Girl is much than a spy novel At its heart is a compelling relationship which just happens to be between an agent and her agent runner or case officer amid a fascinating plot to stop a terrorist bomber But it s the genius and complexity of the relationship that raises The Little Drummer Girl to heights far above the limits of the spy genre An intricate fiction is planned in order to infiltrate the bomber s network and bring him down Michel, the bom John le Carr [...]
