…A lot of people see doubt as legitimate philosophical posture. They think of themselves in the middle, whereas of course really, they're nowhere

It is a beleaguered and betrayed Secret Service that has been put in the care of George Smiley. A mole has been uncovered at the organisation's highest levels - and its agents across the world put in grave danger. But untangling the traitor's web gives Smiley a chance to attack his Russian counterpart, Karla. And part-time spy Jerry Westerby is the weapon at Smiley's disposal.

The winner in 1977 of the Gold Dagger and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, The Honourable Schoolboy is one of John le Carré’s classics, featuring the second legendary clash between Smiley and his arch-nemesis Karla.

‘Energy, compassion, rich and overwhelming sweep of character and action . . . one of the finest English novels of the seventies’, The Times
