Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Featuring George Smiley, this New York Times bestseller is the first installment in John le Carrés acclaimed Karla Trilogy. From the author of A Delicate Truth and The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.

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 recognizes the hand of Karla—his Moscow Centre nemesis—and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

 

The Oscar-nominated feature film adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) and features Gary Oldman as Smiley, Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King's Speech), and Tom Hardy (Inception).

 

With an introduction by the author.

Synopsis:

"It's the oldest question of all, George. Who can spy on the spies?"

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, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is a heart-stopping tale of international intrigue.

With an Introduction by the Author.

Returning to the original after movies and even tv series, is a treat. A testament not only to plot, but driving that, the portraits of complex individuals through deft sketches, dialogue and action. Never a word out of place, nothing fluffy and nothing missing.

I can't believe I've waited so long to read John Le Carre. This is so complex it requires at least two readings. It's wonderful.
