The Constant Gardener

Written by John le Carré | Narrated by Michael Jayston
Discover the thrilling book that inspired the Academy Award–winning movie starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz! After his wife is murdered in Kenya, diplomat Justin sets out to find the killer — and uncovers a sinister web of lies… An Earphones Award winner with an outstanding performance that “should not be missed” (AudioFile).

PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION

Frightening, heartbreaking, and exquisitely calibrated, this John le Carré’s novel opens with the gruesome murder of the young and beautiful Tessa Quayle near northern Kenya’s Lake Turkana, the birthplace of mankind. Her putative African lover and traveling companion, a doctor with one of the aid agencies, has vanished from the scene of the crime. Tessa’s much older husband, Justin, a career diplomat at the British High Commission in Nairobi, sets out on a personal odyssey in pursuit of the killers and their motive.

A master chronicler of the deceptions and betrayals of ordinary people caught in political conflict, le Carré portrays, in The Constant Gardener, the dark side of unbridled capitalism. His 18th novel is also the profoundly moving story of a man whom tragedy elevates. Justin Quayle, amateur gardener and ineffectual bureaucrat, seemingly oblivious to his wife’s cause, discovers his own resources and the extraordinary courage of the woman he barely had time to love.

The Constant Gardener is a magnificent exploration of the new world order by one of the most compelling and elegant storytellers of our time.
