9780140127591: Le Carre John : Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

The enduring novel by one of our greatest storytellers.

George Smiley, who is a troubled man of infinite compassion, is also a single-mindedly ruthless adversary as a spy.

The scene which he enters is a Cold War landscape of moles and lamplighters, scalp-hunters and pavement artists, where men are turned, burned or bought for stock. Smiley's mission is to catch a Moscow Centre mole burrowed thirty years deep into the Circus itself.

Product Description:

Smiley and his people are facing a remarkable challenge: a mole - a soviet double agent - who has burrowed his way in and up to the highest level of British Intelligence. His treachery has already blown some of their vital operations and their best networks. The mole is one of their own kind. But which one?

'His people are full-bodied, believable individuals, the minor characters as vivid as the main cast ... a stunning story'The Wall Street Journal

Review:

A great thriller, the best le Carré has written ( Spectator)

John le Carré is the great master of the spy story . . . the constant flow of emotion lifts him above most novelists now practising ( Financial Times)

A stunning story ( Wall Street Journal )

Many readers obviously love reading their work. At a public appearance earlier this year, John le Carre confessed that he so loved doing the voices of certain characters that he had to stop himself writing them excessive parts. When you hear le Carre read, you realise how much all of his books are of a piece, all part of his creation of a consistent fictional world, with the same rhythms and ventriloquisms , sometimes almost croonings . . . great stuff. ( Evening Standard)
