A half-starved young Russian man is smuggled into Hamburg at night. He has cash secreted in a purse round his neck. He is a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa. Annabel, a young German civil rights lawyer, determines to save Issa from deportation. Soon her client's survival becomes more important to her than her own career. A half-starved young Russian man in a long black overcoat is smuggled into Hamburg at dead of night. He has an improbable amount of cash secreted in a purse round his neck. He is a devout Muslim. Or is he? He says his name is Issa.Poignant, compassionate, peopled with characters the reader never wants to let go, A Most Wanted Man is alive with humour, yet prickles with tension until the last heart-stopping page. It is also a work of deep humanity, and uncommon relevance to our times.
