The BBC’s adaptation of John le Carre’s 1993 novel The Night Manager is to be broadcast in February. Ahead of it we can look forward to a new TV Tie-in edition from penguin books
which will be out on 28 January 2016.

Here’s the blurb…
A special edition of le Carré’s first post-Cold War novel, to tie in with the new major BBC series starring Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston, with a new afterword by the author
At the start of it all, Jonathan Pine is merely the night manager at a luxury hotel. But when a single attempt to pass on information to the British authorities – about an international businessman at the hotel with suspicious dealings – backfires terribly, and people close to Pine begin to die, he commits himself to a battle against powerful forces he cannot begin to imagine.
In a chilling tale of corrupt intelligence agencies, billion-dollar price tags and the truth of the brutal arms trade, John le Carré creates a claustrophobic world in which no one can be trusted.
