Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
Call for the Dead marks the beginning of John le Carré's brilliant literary career as it launches the life of George Smiley, one of the most memorable fictional characters of the twentieth century, and immediately ensnares readers in the shadowy world he inhabits. Pulled back from overseas duty during World War II, George Smiley was redirected to face the threats of the Cold War. Investigating circumstances that make no sense to him, he meets a twisted former hero of the German underground, a once beautiful woman with a terrifying secret, a high-ranking pompous bureaucrat, and a suspect British civil servant. Smiley is bitter and weary??he has seen too much and done too much??yet he cannot refuse one last desperate call for his services. He gradually uncovers a spy ring and is led into a lethal duel of wits with the best of his war-time pupils.
