9780151768431: Call for the Dead

George Smiley had liked the man and now the man was dead. Suicide. But why? An anonymous letter had alleged that Foreign Office man Samuel Fennan had been a member of the Communist Party as a student before the war. Nothing very unusual for his generation. Smiley had made it clear that the investigation, little more than a routine security check, was over and that the file on Fennan could be closed. Next day, Fennan was dead with a note by his body saying his career was finished and he couldn’t go on. Smiley is baffled. Refusing to believe that Fennan shot himself soon after making a cup of cocoa and asking the exchange to telephone him in the morning, Smiley decides to investigate – only to uncover a murderous conspiracy with its roots in his own secret wartime past.

Product Description:

It was less an interview than an amiable conversation over a walk in the park. George Smiley had been sent to speak to a high-ranking civil servant after an anonymous tip-off that he was a security risk. It was a formality - and the two men liked each other. Why then, did it apparently drive the poor man to despair? And why was he found dead the next day, the victim of an unnecessary suicide?



Call for the Dead launched John le Carré's unparalleled career as a novelist, and introduces one of fiction's most famous spies - George Smiley, who is both brilliant and unremarkable.

Product Description:

George Smiley's interview with Samuel Fennan went well & he was able to reassure Fennan that the matter would be dropped. Smiley was shocked to discover next day that Fennan had committed suicide as a result of the interview, but, why?
