Since being turned into an award-winning film, the already much-loved spy novel by John le Carre has gained a new generation of fans. However, many questioned whether a book of such complexity could be effectively be converted into a two-hour feature film. This unabridged reading (by Michael Jayston) of the original novel has no such problems, and creates a faithful addition to the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy canon, suitable for fans of the book, fans of the film and anyone else who likes a ripping good spy yarn.
Set during the height of the cold war, the story follows former British spy George Smiley as he is persuaded out of retirement for a task of utmost importance, and one that requires his very special skills. There’s corruption right in the heart of the British Secret Service and a Soviet mole in the Circus. Smiley faces a race against time to uncover the mole’s true identity – by any means necessary...
It’s a task that Smiley relishes, as it gives him the chance to go up against his old enemy Karla one more time, but dreads because it means delving deep to find which of his former colleagues and friends has been working as a double agent. A tense, enigmatic tale from the true craftsman of the spy thriller genre.
