John le Carré's classic novels deftly navigate readers through the intricate shadow worlds of international espionage with unsurpassed skill and knowledge, and have earned him — and his hero, British Secret Service Agent George Smiley — unprecedented worldwide acclaim.

Although spy George Smiley is enjoying his retirement, he is asked to go one more round in a conclusive match against Karla, his mortal enemy inside the Soviet Union.
