Product description

Review

“To honor [their] 45th anniversary, Walker is reissuing these first two George Smiley mysteries in affordable hardcovers. Grab em.” ―Library Journal

“Beautifully intelligent, satiric and witty.” ―The Observer (London)

“Vastly entertaining.” ―Sunday Telegraph (London)

About the Author

John le Carré made his literary debut in America on Walker & Company's first lists, in 1962 and 1963, introducing his famous character, George Smiley. Now, as part of our 45th anniversary, we are proud and excited to re-issue these two early masterpieces in new hardcover editions, with introductions by the author and forewords by P. D. James and Otto Penzler.

John le Carré has been called "simply the world's greatest fictional spymaster" (Newsweek) and "one of the half-dozen best novelists now working in English" (Chicago Sun-Times). "No other contemporary novelist has more durably enjoyed the twin badges of being both well-read and wellregarded," wrote Scott Turow. He has created many memorable characters, but none with more worldwide acclaim than George Smiley, the bland, paunchy, yet deadly British Secret Service agent.

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.
