"It's an emergency, George. You remember Vladimir? George, are you awake? You remember the old General?"
The phone call that dragged George Smiley, acting Chief of the Circus, from his bed was a plea to return to active service. But only to bury the case, not to solve it....
George Smiley was summoned from his dubious retirement by two seemingly unconnected events - an old woman in Paris is promised the return of a daughter she will never see, and a handover is to take place on a steamer in Hamburg.

"An achievement of subtlety and power of which few novelists would be capable. It is the best single thing le Carré has done." (The Financial Times)
