Carne School, Britain's most prestigious public school, is the scene of a grisly murder. Although not connected to the official investigation, George Smiley begins to pursue the case. With a clandestine lead and incomparable insight into the human psyche, George starts to uncover an unspeakable truth.
Exundercover agent George Smiley emerges from retirement to solve a baffling, bloody crime. This time it is not a Cold War spy that he is hunting but the solution to the brutal murder of a harmless housewife in the seemingly peaceful setting of a prestigious British boys school. It is there, at Carne School, where he becomes entangled with a woman as dangerous as she is charming and with a tottering, brilliant man haunted by a perverse secret of his past. Smiley pursues the murderer amid the hollow pomp and ceremony of the schools establishment, where a man's fate is decided over tea and a sentence of death can be passed out with biscuits and sherry.
