Interesting part is the nuts and bolts, meticulous planning of a decoy operation . While no doubt the concept and thinking demonstrate the potential of human imagination and creativity . But guess that’s probably if espionage all about to be make reality out of fiction !!

Insightful and detailed

Good glimpse on Alibaba and Ma’s philosophy , journey Alibaba went through . Also get to know on dynamics between west and China in the Internet businesses . Good for folks who are not deep into Internet economy . Don’t expect too much detailing .

Brilliant narration ! Le Carré as always elevating the spy fiction to a North Star of literary fiction with intricacies of human emotions , relationships , complexities teased out beautifully . The greys and the shadows lines of human life etched out to leave the reader with an sense of ambivalence .

For the espionage buffs !!
