As The Night Manager has wrapped up on AMC, author John Le Carre sat down for the final two segments of Author’s Notes. Not surprising they focus on Richard Roper (Hugh Laurie) as he finally reveals what he really does to Jonathan Pine (Tom HIddleston). Le Carre uses Roper to illustrated the direct connections between warfare and corporate greed. Also, the story is more about the fall of an empire than about the man who brought the empire down.
These segments are brilliant for anyone wishing to write suspense.
