Overview

TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY

The first novel in John le Carré's celebrated and New York Times bestselling Karla trilogy featuring George Smiley, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is a heart-stopping tale of international intrigue.




The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement-especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla—his Moscow Centre nemesis—and sets a trap to catch the traitor.



THE HONOURABLE SCHOOLBOY


As the fall of Saigon looms, master spy George Smiley must outmaneuver his Soviet counterpart on a battlefield that neither can afford to lose.





The mole has been eliminated, but the damage wrought has brought the British Secret Service to its knees. Given the charge of the gravely compromised Circus, George Smiley embarks on a campaign to uncover what Moscow Centre most wants to hide. When the trail goes cold at a Hong Kong gold seam, Smiley dispatches Gerald Westerby to shake the money tree. A part-time operative with cover as a philandering journalist, Westerby insinuates himself into a war-torn world where allegiances—and lives—are bought and sold.





Brilliantly plotted and morally complex, The Honourable Schoolboy is the second installment of John le Carré’s renowned and New York Times bestselling Karla Trilogy, the follow-up to Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.



SMILEY'S PEOPLE


Tell Max that it concerns the Sandman…





A very junior agent answers Vladimir’s call, but it could have been the Chief of the Circus himself. No one at the British Secret Service considers the old spy to be anything except a senile has-been who can’t give up the game—until he’s shot in the face at point-blank range. Although George Smiley (code name: Max) is officially retired, he’s summoned to identify the body now bearing Moscow Centre’s bloody imprimatur. As he works to unearth his friend’s fatal secrets, Smiley heads inexorably toward one final reckoning with Karla—his dark “grail.”





In Smiley’s People, master storyteller and New York Times bestselling author of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Our Kind of Traitor John le Carré brings his acclaimed Karla Trilogy, to its unforgettable, spellbinding conclusion.

    Recommended for spy folks

    This trilogy is for those who enjoy a cerebral story. Put on your cloak and dagger and prepare for John LeCarre to take you for a walk through the world of the cold war spie.

    Terrific series - well-written

    I saw the American-made film prior to reading the books. I feared the books (when I heard of them years ago) would be the 007 or "Bourne" style of "spy/espionage" stories. I only wish I discovered them sooner. Le Carre's writing is fabulous and engaging. I love the description offered as you can see the action unfold, yet are not lost in the details too much either. People describe these as "cerebral" and I'd agree. These are not for lazy readers. That said, they're complex stories with a lot of nuance.

    A character study well worth visiting.

    LaCarre' was one of my favorite authors years ago. After many recommendations I am revisiting him with great pleasure.
