The Human Factor

The latest in my reading of the full Graham Greene oeuvre. This novel is about the life of Castle, a middle ranking official working in intelligence within the Foreign Office.
There’s a leak within the department, and the devious Dr Percieval is on the case. There’s no major scandal going on – it’s all very slight, but Castle used to live in South Africa where he married a black woman.
Overall quite enjoyable in circus era Le Carr� manner. Speaking of which, when is the next Le Carr� likely to be published?
