‘Call for the Dead’ was the first novel ever written by the bestselling author of espionage and thriller novels, John le Carre. Introducing his most popular recurring character, the ungraceful and unassuming ‘Circus’ agent George Smiley, this outstanding work of crime fiction firmly planted le Carre on the literary most wanted list.
The story begins in London in the late 1950s. George Smiley is content in the humdrum job of security vetting, completely unprepared for the shocking series of events that follow. Following the suspicious suicide of Samuel Fennan, a Foreign Office civil servant, Smiley finds himself caught in a tangled web of lies and conspirators. It is up to the bespectacled protagonist to get to the bottom of a murderous plot that has its roots in his own secret wartime past.
This complete and unabridged reading of ‘Call for the Dead’, captivatingly read by Dr Who actor Michael Jayston, is available as a CD audiobook, providing you with nearly five hours of exceptional quality audio entertainment. All featured John le Carre titles can also be downloaded as audiobooks on MP3, leaving you free to build your collection in the format of your choice.
