Summary

Featuring George Smiley, this New York Times best seller is the first instalment in John le Carré’s acclaimed Karla trilogy. 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 on only his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognises the hand of Karla - his Moscow Centre nemesis - and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is now a successful movie, directed by Thomas Alfredson and starring Gary Oldman as George Smiley.
