4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting plot, different from the rest of the series
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 June 2020
One wonders why Le Carre wrote this and how it relates to the rest of the spy series. It could probably be read as stand alone book and follows Smiley's investigation of a murder of a women married to one of the teachers at a prestigious school. Whilst this is a good murder mystery and could be read in a day (very short), it lacks the same espionage intrigue as the rest of the stories and seems to bridge the gap between Smiley's retirement and his return to the Circus. There are some amusing character studies in this and comparisons between classes which are interesting. You could probably miss this out and still understand the following books.
