Featuring George Smiley, this  New York Times  bestseller is the first installment in John le Carr#65533;'s acclaimed Karla Trilogy. From the author of  A Delicate Truth  and  The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.  John le Carr#65533;'s new novel, A Legacy of Spies , will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.

The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement--especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla--his Moscow Centre nemesis--and sets a trap to catch the traitor.
The Oscar-nominated feature film adaptation of  Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy  is directed by Tomas Alfredson ( Let the Right One In ) and features Gary Oldman as Smiley, Academy Award winner Colin Firth ( The King's Speech ), and Tom Hardy ( Inception ).
With an introduction by the author.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Packaged to tie in with the recent film version of this masterful spy thriller, the audio edition benefits from strong narration from Michael Jayston, an actor who appeared in the 1979 BBC television adaptation of le Carre's complex novel. The twisting plot, boiled down, focuses on retired British spymaster George Smiley, who's called back to duty to find a traitor among the "gang of four" now heading England's secret service. In the miniseries, Jayston portrayed Smiley's right-hand man, Peter Guillam. In this audio edition, he easily slips back into the loyal, dedicated Guillam, while also doing justice to the book's cast of characters. His spot-on portrayal of Smiley admirably includes both of the protagonist's sides: his quietly brilliant professionalism and his personal self-doubt and fecklessness. Jayston's characterizations are invariably effective, from gruff, lonely, and broken ex-spy Jim Prideaux to the high-flying, arrogant members of the "gang of four." Two moments-Smiley's subtle questioning of a former teammate, once famous for her now-fading memory, and the exciting, highly suspenseful exposure of the Russian spy-are particular standouts. Jayston matches both perfectly, as well as all those in between. A Penguin paperback. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
