The novel tells the tale of Magnus Pym, a long-time spy for the United Kingdom. When Pym mysteriously disappears, a number of his fellow secret agents suspect that he may have betrayed them, and not without reason throughout most of his career, Magnus was also cooperating with the Czechoslovak secret service. Although the book is filled with intrigue, wit, and suspense, the novel is in part an unadorned recollection of Rick, Magnus's father, who was based on Le Carré's own father.
