9780340513088: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Coronet Books)

 

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.

From the Publisher:

John Le Carre's internationally famous hero, British Secret Service Agent George Smiley, has a world-class problem. He has discovered a mole--a Soviet double agent who has managed to burrow his way up to the highest level of British Intelligence. Under the direction of Karla, Smiley's equivelent in the Soviet Union, the agent has already blown some of the most vital secret operations and most productive networks. Now-how can Smiley use a lifetime's worth of espionage skills to ferret out a spy who posseses them as well?

"A stunning story of espionage."--The Wall Street Journal.

"Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster."--Newsweek
