Sølvblik

Julian Lawndsley har opgivet sit prestigefyldte job i London og har slået sig ned som boghandler i en lille engelsk kystby. Men en aften, kun et par måneder efter karriereskiftet, får Julian besøg. Edward, en polsk emigrant, der bor i Sølvblik, det store hus i udkanten af byen, ved en hel del om Julians familie og er ualmindeligt interesseret i hans lille boghandel. En spionchef i London modtager et brev, der advarer om en faretruende lækage, og hans efterforskning fører ham til den stille kystby… Sølvblik er en intens historie om et møde mellem uskyld og erfaring og mellem samfundspligt og personlig moral. John le Carré stiller i romanen spørgsmålet: Hvad skylder vi egentlig de mennesker, vi elsker?
