Beschreibung

A beautiful 60th anniversary special edition of the first George Smiley novel, now with a new introduction by John le Carré

After a routine security check by George Smiley, civil servant Samuel Fennan apparently kills himself. When Smiley finds Circus head Maston is trying to blame him for the man's death, he begins his own investigation, meeting with Fennan's widow to find out what could have led him to such desperation. But on the very day that Smiley is ordered off the enquiry he receives an urgent letter from the dead man. Do the East Germans - and their agents - know more about this man's death than the Circus previously imagined?

Le Carré's debut novel, Call for the Dead, introduced the tenacious and retiring George Smiley in a gripping tale of espionage and deceit.

'The greatest spy novelist of all time' Jake Kerridge, Daily Telegraph

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.
