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.
'A great thriller, the best le Carre has written'
'A stunning story'
Wall Street Journal
'John le Carre is the great master of the spy story ... the constant flow of emotion lifts him above most novelists now practising.'
