. Dawood Ibrahim Dawood Ibrahim is the most wanted man in India. He is believed to be living and running businesses in Kenya. In this case, I can only assume that le Carré wants to leave the two Muslims as blank templates so that we, like the intelligence services, can map our own prejudices and preconceptions on to them. The Novel is well written as always, fluent and gripping. The main character Issa, is a Chechen Muslim supposedly smuggled into Germany. Does this book directly relate to most common people? And of course the gears of power here work in mysterious ways.

Already knowing the ending took some steam out of the book, which is, in many respects, different from the movie. This story is no exception but its precise subject matter would give the game away and that is not something that you do with thrillers. He commands a huge criminal organization involved in weapons trafficking, drug trafficking, contract murders, prostitution, fraud, and possibly even nuclear materials trafficking. The central character an escaped Chechen Muslim in Germany illegally was so unsympathetic, he made you feel sorry for the Russians. His plotting has shifted over the decades. An idealistic young lawyer tries to see that her client, the Muslim, is able to fulfill his financial desires.

He remains at large and is one the most wanted criminals in the world. The Novel is well written as always, fluent and gripping. The conclusion is at once shocking, unsatisfying, and authentic, relentless in insisting in its own inevitability and undeniable as the only possible result of all that preceded it.

But will this go down as a classic? They are all accused of a long history of committing serious crimes and are considered a menace to the world. I haven't seen the film adaptation, but I nonetheless couldn't help picturing Philip Seymour Hoffman in my mind when reading Gunther Bachmann's dialogue.

But he is yet to be put behind bars for all his actions. Ibrahim and D-Company mostly operate in India, Pakistan, and the United Arab Emirates. He is a devout Muslim. I also thought the entire cast gave fine performances. Sorry, but I just don't care for John le Carre's books. Felicien Kabuga Felicien Kabuga is accused of extremist genocide and is supposedly hiding in Kenya. In his early books he made a lot of plot seem like a little; now he makes a little plot go a long way and the result is a novel which takes a long time to reach a predictable climax and never really delivers the emotional punch that it promises.

Certainly the film simplifies what I am sure was an even more complex story than in the original book, but I thought the direction was stylish and kept things interesting and moving along. He says his name is Issa. The Brits are nasty and rather stupid, the Americans nasty and ruthless. Is it life or law that is of primary importance? I felt there was some anger buried in this writing, that it was more than fiction. This story develops at a good pace with a well developed plot.

While the everyone on this list come from different part of the world and a variety of backgrounds, but with same thing in common — they are most wanted people. One can argue that this is not fair. They are vivid, they are complex, and they are real. A vaguely interesting counter-terrorism network is documented and arrayed against a not-very interesting suspect and his associates. Well, A Most Wanted Man is not the best of Le Carre's book.
