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 pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. 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.

The first novel in John le Carré’s celebrated Karla trilogy, Tinker, Taylor, Soldier, Spy is a heart-stopping tale of international intrigue.
