Magnus Pym, Counsellor at the British Embassy, is hosting a dinner party at his home in Vienna when he receives an unexpected telephone call that will profoundly affect his life. Once the guests have gone, Pym breaks the news to his wife, Mary: his father Rick is dead. In a state of shock, he says something Mary cannot understand—'After all these years, I'm free.' Magnus flies back to England to attend the funeral—and doesn't return. As Mary and MI6 spymaster Jack Brotherhood desperately try to find out his whereabouts, it soon becomes clear that Pym has been keeping secrets from both his family and his employers, the British Intelligence Service. Hiding out in a remote cottage in Devon, where he goes by the name of Mr. Canterbury, Magnus begins to write his memoirs—retracing his rise and fall and revealing how Rick led him step by step into a double life of deception, broken promises and betrayal.

I liked this spy thriller CD. The violence is subtle but present. Perhaps, it is too graphic for children. The sexual aspects are subtle and present too. Le Carré, John did a great job with the script writing A Perfect Spy. The script has lots of surprises to keep you interested. You may feel some sympathy for the characters in the story like I did. I like John as an author. A biography about him I watched said he was actually a spy in his life. According to the biography his scripts are based on facts with the fake names of people and places. It is supposed to represent what it is really like to be a spy.
