About The Mission Song

The Mission Song is a thriller/espionage novel by John le Carré. Published in 2006. Set against the background of the chaotic East Congo. The story involves the planning of a Western backed coup. In the province of Kivu. Told from the worm’s eye view of the hapless interpreter.

So, Bruno Salvador is much in demand as an interpreter of African languages. He makes it a principle to remain neutral. No matter what he hears. But when he is summoned on a secret job for British Intelligence, he is told he will have to get his hands dirty. His mission is to help bring democracy to the Congo. Democracy that will be delivered at the end of a gun barrel.

The Mission Song is an excoriating depiction of a corrupt world. Where loyalty can be bought and war is simply an opportunity to settle old scores.

‘Simply astonishing … a formidably sophisticated work of fiction’ Charles Cumming
