PRODUCT DETAILS

The Circus has already suffered a bad defeat, and the result was two bullets in a man's back. But a bigger threat still exists. And the legendary George Smiley is recruited to root out a high-level mole of thirty years' standing - though to find him means spying on the spies. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is brilliant and ceaselessly compelling, pitting Smiley against his Cold War rival, Karla, in one of the greatest struggles in all fiction.

About the Author

John le Carre was born in 1931. His third novel, THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD, secured him a wide reputation which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY, THE HONOURABLE SCHOOLBOY and SMILEY'S PEOPLE. His other novels include THE CONSTANT GARDENER, A MOST WANTED MAN and OUR KIND OF TRAITOR.

From AudioFile

The Cold War, perhaps dead in reality, lives on vibrantly in Michael Jayston's reading of a literary spy classic. This installment of the le Carré canon has George Smiley trying to uncover a Soviet mole in the British Secret Service. Jayston's rich, full-bodied voice recreates the paranoia, urgency, and dread implicit in any Soviet threat. He reads with a steady pace and allows the story to unfold naturally, with all the twists and turns subtly revealed. Jayston, a British actor, gives each character a distinct voice, and his inflections uncover their motivations and foibles. He even pauses well. The result is an intelligent book read with respect for the reader's intelligence
