Beautifully elegant, satiric and witty ― Telegraph

About the Author

John le Carré was born in 1931. For six decades, he wrote novels that came to define our age. The son of a confidence trickster, he spent his childhood between boarding school and the London underworld. At sixteen he found refuge at the university of Bern, then later at Oxford. A spell of teaching at Eton led him to a short career in British Intelligence (MI5&6). He published his debut novel, Call for the Dead, in 1961 while still a secret servant. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a worldwide reputation, which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People. At the end of the Cold War, le Carré widened his scope to explore an international landscape including the arms trade and the War on Terror. His memoir, The Pigeon Tunnel, was published in 2016 and the last George Smiley novel, A Legacy of Spies, appeared in 2017. He died on 12 December 2020.

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.
