Bruno Salvador, known to friends and enemies alike as Salvo, is the ever-innocent twenty-nine-year-old orphaned love child of a Catholic Irish missionary and a Congolese woman.

Educated first at a mission school in the East Congolese province of Kivu and later at a discreet sanctuary for the secret sons of Rome, Salvo is inspired by his mentor, Brother Michael, to train as a professional interpreter in the minority African languages of which, almost from birth, he has been an obsessive collector.

Soon a rising star in his profession, he is courted by London corporations, hospitals, law firms, the immigration services, and - inevitably - the mushrooming overworld of British Intelligence. He is also courted - and won - by Penelope, a white upper-class star reporter on one of the great national newspapers, whom with typical impulsiveness he promptly marries. Yet even as the story opens, a contrary and irresistible love is dawning in him.

Dispatched by British Intelligence to a no-name island in the North Sea to attend a top-secret meeting between Western financiers and East Congolese warlords, Salvo is obliged to interpret matters never intended for his reawakened African conscience.

By turns thriller, love story, and comic allegory of our times, The Mission Song recounts Salvo's heroically naive journey out of the dark of Western hypocrisy and into the heart of lightness.

John Le Carre was born  in 1931. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a wide reputation, which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy, and Smiley's People.  "His recent novels include The Tailor of Panama, The Constant Gardener, and Absolute Friends. The Mission Song is his twentieth novel
David Oyelowo is well known for his television roles in Spooks and As Time Goes By, and has appeared in the films As You Like It and A Sound of Thunder. He won an Ian Charleson award for his lead performance in Henry VI with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
