The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement—especially when a desperate Russian woman defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. His treachery has already blown some of their vital operations and their best networks. He is one of their own kind. But which one? Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley traces the breach back to Karla—his Moscow Centre nemesis—and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Intense I'm a little disappointed in this one. I normally like Le Carre, but I found this one a bit difficult to follow. I saw the movie first and had a hard time staying with it. Thinking it was me, I read the book in order to understand the film, but no that didn't happen. The easiest part to follow was getting towards the end when Smiley narrowed the odds as to who the mole actually was. Challenging to say the least.

"A rattling good novel." - San Francisco Chronicle

"John le Carré is the great master of the spy story . . . the constant flow of emotion lifts him not only above all modern suspense novelists, but above most novelists now practicing." - Financial Times
