The Little Drummer Girl

The Little Drummer Girl is a spy novel by John le Carré, published in 1983. The story follows the manipulations of Martin Kurtz, an Israeli spymaster who intends to kill Khalil - a Palestinian terrorist who is bombing Jewish-related targets in Europe, particularly Germany - and Charlie, an English actress and double agent working on behalf of the Israelis. Despite the plot, some reviewers thought it transcended the spy novel genre. "The Little Drummer Girl is about spies", said William F. Buckley, writing in The New York Times, "as Madame Bovary is about adultery or Crime and Punishment about crime."

A finalist for the National Book Award and considered one of the best literary ghost stories published during the 20th century, it has been made into two feature films, a play and is the basis of the eponymous Netflix series. Jackson's novel relies on terror rather than horror to elicit emotion in the reader, using complex relationships between the mysterious events in the house and the characters’ psyches.
