‘A Murder of Quality’ is the second of John le Carre’s gripping thriller’s starring his most famous recurring character, the unlikely, bespectacled genius George Smiley.

Before Smiley even has a chance to talk to her, the woman is found bludgeoned to death in a public school. In a town in which the tubby, seemingly incompetent Smiley is far from well received, the list of potential motivations for murder and suspects grows and grows. Wading his way through the inconsistent accounts from the townsfolk, whilst at the same time trying to defend the case of a madwoman who the police believe is the murderer, Smiley must confront a dangerous world of long concealed truths and passionate hatreds.
