It's the oldest question of all, George. Who can spy on the spies?
George Smiley, a troubled man of infinite compassion, is also a single-mindedly ruthless adversary as a spy. Smiley and his people are facing a remarkable challenge: a mole – a Soviet double agent – who has burrowed his way in and up to the Circus, the highest level of British Intelligence. His treachery has already blown some of their vital operations and their best networks. The mole is one of their own kind. But which one?
