9780143122593: The Looking Glass War: A George Smiley Novel

From the New York Times bestselling author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy;Our Kind of Traitor; and The Night Manager, now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carré’s new novel, A Legacy of Spies, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.

"You are either good or bad, and both are dangerous."

It would have been an easy job for the Circus: a can of film couriered from Helsinki to London. In the past the Circus handled all things political, while the Department dealt with matters military. But the Department has been moribund since the War, its resources siphoned away. Now, one of their agents is dead, and vital evidence verifying the presence of Soviet missiles near the West German border is gone. John Avery is the Department's younger member and its last hope. Charged with handling Fred Leiser, a German-speaking Pole left over from the War, Avery must infiltrate the East and restore his masters' former glory.

John le Carre's The Looking Glass War is a scorching portrayal of misplaced loyalties and innocence lost.

With an introduction by the author.

From the Publisher:

From the Inside Flap:

An experienced agent is mysteriously killed on a freezing night near a foreign airport. Thus begins an intricate mission of military espionage that brings together three desperate men.
The zealot, the pawn, the string puller: each seeks a different kind of glory, each risks the thing he values most, each is caught up in a double-sided game that carries him from London to Berlin -- and from treachery, to betrayal, to cold-blooded murder.
"Le Carre is simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster." -- Newsweek
