Beskrivelse

George Smiley, le Carré's most beloved character, is finally back after more than twenty-five years! Colleague and disciple of George Smiley, Peter Guillam of the British Secret Service is living out his old age on the family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London. Why? His Cold War past has come back to claim him. Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinised under disturbing criteria by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications. Interweaving past with present so that each may tell its own intense story, John le Carré has spun a single plot as ingenious and thrilling as the two predecessors on which it looks back: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
