About The Constant Gardener

“Tessa Quayle, a brilliant and beautiful young social activist, has been found brutally murdered by Lake Turkana in Nairobi. The rumours are that she was faithless, careless, but her husband Justin, a reserved, garden-loving British diplomat, refuses to believe them. As he sets out to discover what really happened to Tessa, he unearths a conspiracy more disturbing, and more deadly, than he could ever have imagined.

A blistering exposé of global corruption, The Constant Gardener is also the moving portrayal of a man searching for justice for the woman he has barely had time to love.” – Penguin

Artist Bio

John le Carré is a British author, born in 1931. Although, his real name is David John Moore Cornwell, John le Carré was his author pseudonym. He attended the universities of Bern and Oxford, and also taught at Eton. Also, during the 1950s and 60s, he worked in British Intelligence (MI5 and MI6), which then inspired him to write espionage novels. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in From the Cold became an international best-seller. He then left MI6 to become a full-time novelist. Le Carré is now recognised world-wide and is incredibly well-established in his field.

Some of his most famous works include Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (1974), The Night Manager (1993), The Spy Who Came in From the Cold (1963), and A Perfect Spy (1986).
