Waterstones Says

The precise, unbearably tense operation to uncover a Soviet mole at the heart of British Intelligence forms one of le Carre’s touchstone novels. From smoke filled Whitehall offices to the backstreets of Hong Kong, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’s pitch perfect fusion of credible, intriguing characterisation (take a bow, George Smiley) and immersive, labyrinthine plot remains much imitated to this day.

A stunning story' Wall Street Journal

A mole, implanted by Moscow Centre, has infiltrated the highest ranks of the British Intelligence Service, almost destroying it in the process. And so former spymaster George Smiley has been brought out of retirement in order to hunt down the traitor at the very heart of the Circus - even though it may be one of those closest to him.

The first part of le Carre's acclaimed Karla Trilogy, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy sees the beginning of the stealthy Cold War cat-and-mouse game between the taciturn, dogged Smiley and his wily Soviet counterpart.

'A great thriller, the best le Carre has written' Spectator

“Le Carre is the best”

I have just re-read the Smiley series. Without a doubt, Le Carre is the finest author of this genre. All of the series are well worth a re-read. Characters are well drawn, spy craft is perfectly documented,... More

“I have now been compelled to read more”

This is the first John Le Carré book that I have ever read. When I mentioned it to a few people that I would be reading it they all said the same thing, ‘it is a great book to get me introduced to the author’s work’.... More
