The Constant Gardener

by John le Carré

Open iTunes to Buy


Frightening, heartbreaking, and exquisitely calibrated, The Constant Gardener opens with the gruesome murder of the young and beautiful Tessa Quayle near northern Kenya's Lake Turkana - the birthplace of mankind. Her putative African lover and traveling companion, a doctor with one of the aid agencies, has vanished from the scene of the crime. Tessa's much older husband, Justin, a career diplomat at the British High Commission in Nairobi, sets out on a personal odyssey in pursuit of the killers. Tragedy elevates Justin Quayle, amateur gardener and ineffectual bureaucrat, seemingly oblivious to his wife's cause, when he wakes to his own resources and the extraordinary courage of the woman he barely had time to love.

Contant Gardener is Fantastic

I read the Constant Gardener after I saw the movie September 2005. I am now going to Kenya for a semester as a result to see the beautiful scenery and magestic country for myself. The story of Tessa and Justin is heartbreaking. The sort of testing done by The Three Bees is probably an unfortunate reality of the life of those in African nations. Completely inspiring, makes you want to go out and help people in African countries, which is what I am going to do as a result of this book.
