The Night Manager
John Le Carre - David Cornwall - one of my favourite all time writers has his book The Night Manager now being broadcast as a BBC mini-series with a great cast, which I heartily recommend.

By some curious chance this is a book of his I missed over the years and am now reading. His prose, cynical, wicked and cutting observations and hilarious storytelling is a real joy. And I suppose there are a few reverberations also to my own time in the City banking arms bazaar that make it spell-binding for the horrible reality the story presents.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
