4.0 out of 5 stars Very good spy thriller!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 May 2020
I have never read any of the George Smiley books, therefore I was surprised to find it was over 150 pages. Quality not quantity certainly stands out, as this book is very fast-paced, interesting and a wonderful introduction to Smiley. Some parts are little complicated, but it includes some excellent character studies and some humorous views. I read this in less than 24 hours and have already purchased the second!

I would highly recommend this, even if you are not into spy thrillers as it reads like a grown ups famous five or secret seven, it is very good and does not get bogged down in detail!
