A Legacy of Spies by John le Carré

Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, has retired to his family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London.

The reason?  His Cold War past has come back to claim him.  Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London are to be scrutinised by a generation with no memory of the Cold War.  Somebody must be made to pay for innocent blood once spilt in the name of the greater good.

Interweaving past with present so that each may tell its own story, John le Carré has given us a novel of superb and enduring quality.

The undisputed master returns with a riveting new book – his first Smiley novel in more than twenty-five years.

Peer & Press Reviews

What are we to make of Smiley?  What is his game?  Do we like him?  Admire him?  Every le Carré reader has wrestled with these questions – and A Legacy of Spies brings them to the fore more directly than any previous book.

Vanity Fair

He can communicate emotion, from sweating fear to despairing love, with terse and compassionate conviction.  Above all, he can tell a tale.  Formidable equipment for a rare and disturbing writer.

Sunday Times

The old magic still holds…  I might as well say it: to read this simmering novel is to come in from the cold.

New York Times
