about

The mole has been eliminated, but the damage wrought has brought the British Secret Service to its knees. Given charge of the gravely compromised Circus, George Smiley embarks on a campaign to uncover what Moscow Centre most wants to hide. When the trail goes cold at a Hong Kong gold seam, Smiley dispatches Gerald Westerby to shake the money tree. A part-time operative with cover as a philandering journalist, Westerby insinuates himself into a war-torn world where allegiances—and lives—are bought and soled.

Brillaintly plotted and morally complex, The Honourable Schoolboy is the second installment of John le Carré's renowned Karla trilogy and a riveting portrayal of postcolonial espionage.

Editorial Reviews

"Not a page of this book is without intelligence and grace." - The New York Times

"Energy, compassion, rich and overwhelming sweep of character and action . . . one of the finest English novels of the seventies." - The Times (London)

"All the good things are there: the Balkan complexities of plot; the Dickensian profusion of idiosyncratic characters; and above all, le Carré’s glistening social observation." - Time
