'The novel that I love the most is The Quiet American' Ian McEwan

Into the intrigue and violence of 1950s Indo-China comes CIA agent Alden Pyle, a young idealistic American sent to promote democracy through a mysterious 'Third Force'. As his naive optimism starts to cause bloodshed, his friend Fowler, a cynical foreign correspondent, finds it hard to stand aside and watch.

But even as he intervenes he wonders why: for the greater good, or something altogether more complicated?
