Summary
From the New York Times bestselling author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy ; Our Kind of Traitor ; and The Night Manager , now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carré's new novel , A Legacy of Spies, is now available.

The 50th-anniversary edition of the bestselling novel that launched John le Carré's career worldwide

In the shadow of the newly erected Berlin Wall, Alec Leamas watches as his last agent is shot dead by East German sentries. For Leamas, the head of Berlin Station, the Cold War is over. As he faces the prospect of retirement or worse--a desk job--Control offers him a unique opportunity for revenge. Assuming the guise of an embittered and dissolute ex-agent, Leamas is set up to trap Mundt, the deputy director of the East German Intelligence Service--with himself as the bait. In the background is George Smiley, ready to make the game play out just as Control wants.

Setting a standard that has never been surpassed, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a devastating tale of duplicity and espionage.
