The Little Drummer Girl. John Le Carre.


The story concerns an Israeli plot to catch one of the most important Palestinian terrorists, Khalil. The Israeli scheme centers on the terrorist's preference for using European women recruited to the Palestinian cause, and the relative visibility of Khalil's brother, who is part of the terrorist organization. To make the plot work, Kurtz, the Israeli leading the operation, must infiltrate an agent into the terrorist group. He chooses Charlie, an actress with pro-Palestinian leanings. Kurtz's first task is to convince Charlie to do it against her convictions. The method used is brilliant, playing on Charlie's deepest insecurities and need for love rather than trying to convert her to the Israeli point of view. Now Charlie is ready to start on an adventure that will take her across Europe and to Palestinian training camps in Lebanon and will require the actress to give the performance of her life.
