Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of  The Spy Who Came in from the Cold; and The Night Manager, now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carré’s new novel, A Legacy of Spies, is now available.

The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement—especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla—his Moscow Centre nemesis—and sets a trap to catch the traitor.
 
The Oscar-nominated feature film adaptation of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) and features Gary Oldman as Smiley, Academy Award winner Colin Firth (The King's Speech), and Tom Hardy (Inception).

In a word, a masterpiece

This work is to the Bond books what Titian is to a comic strip. Flat out the finest "spy novel" ever. Complex, rich, thorough, in plotting, prose and point. Simply superb.

Common reader ,

Best thriller of the 20th Century

The movie and the TV series are good, but nothing original. It make one weep for all the intelligence wasted in the Cold War, all the promise buried in paranoia, all those betrayals of every ideal fought for since 1939 in Europe.

Wonderful

The plot is simple - uncover the Soviet agent in British Intelligence - but the story is complex.

It’s written by an ex-spy (real name David Cornwall) and it shows. There is a wealth of detail and a level of complexity that requires the reader’s full attention to follow along.
