Le Carré had been working on the book alongside his last two novels, A Legacy of Spies and Agent Running in the Field. It was le Carré’s wish that his children look after his literary legacy and they, along with an archivist, are currently cataloguing his archive of unpublished work. Silverview is the only complete, full length, novel left unpublished at the time of his death. Julian Lawndsley has renounced his high-flying job in the City for a simpler life running a bookshop in a small English seaside town. But only a couple of months into his new career, Julian’s evening is disrupted by a visitor. Edward, a Polish émigré living in Silverview, the big house on the edge of town, seems to know a lot about Julian’s family and is rather too interested in the inner workings of his modest new enterprise. When a letter turns up at the door of a spy chief in London warning him of a dangerous leak, the investigations lead him to this quiet town by the sea . . .
