Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

by John le Carre

Part of the The Penguin John le Carre Hardback Collection Series

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Synopsis

The first part of John le Carre's acclaimed Karla Trilogy, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy sees the beginning of the stealthy Cold War cat-and-mouse game between the taciturn, dogged George Smiley and his wily Soviet counterpart. A mole, implanted by Moscow Centre, has infiltrated the highest ranks of the British Intelligence Service, almost destroying it in the process. And so former spymaster George Smiley has been brought out of retirement in order to hunt down the traitor at the very heart of the Circus - even though it may be one of those closest to him. 'A stunning story' Wall Street Journal 'A great thriller, the best le Carre has written' Spectator THE FIFTH GEORGE SMILEY NOVEL
