Synopsis

Peter Guillam, former disciple of George Smiley in the British Secret Service, has long retired to Brittany when a letter arrives, summoning him to London.

The reason? Cold War ghosts have come back to haunt him.

Intelligence operations that were once the toast of the Service are to be dissected by a generation with no memory of the Berlin Wall. Somebody must pay for innocent blood spilt in the name of the greater good . . .

External Reviews

'Utterly engrossing and perfectly pitched. There is only one le Carre. Eloquent, subtle, sublimely paced' - Daily Mail.

'Splendid, fast-paced, riveting' - Andrew Marr, Sunday Times.

'Remarkable. Vintage John le Carre. It gives the reader, at long last, pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that have been missing for 54 years. Like wine, le Carre's writing has got richer with age.' - The Times.

'Perhaps the most significant novelist of the second half of the 20th century in Britain. He's in the first rank' - Ian McEwan.
