A Most Wanted Man by John le Carre

In A Most Wanted Man, a Russian named Issa Karpov surfaces in Hamburg, Germany (once home to the 9/11 hijackers). Issa is a devout Muslim and holds the key to a fortune in money in a British bank. When the authorities try to deport him, a German civil rights lawyer, Annabel Richter, tries to stop it. She has lost a number of deportation cases and decides to draw the line at this one. Tommy Brue runs the bank which made its fortune laundering dirty KGB money and is now falling on harder times. Annabel gets Tommy to reluctantly agree to help Issa, while the British, American, and German intelligence services all have their own plans for the three of them. John le Carre's novel has received mostly positive reviews with The Telegraph saying, "But if le Carre is at times a self-indulgent writer, then he surely deserves to be indulged. A Most Wanted Man is a first-class novel about the most pressing moral and political concerns of our time, not least the scandal of extraordinary rendition."
