Bought it because it featured George Smiley. Different from the Karla Trilogy in this isn't a spy thriller, but Smiley uses the same deductive techniques to solve the mystery.

True to Le Carre' form. Mysterious, exciting, surprising and excellent detail. I have read nearly all his books and this is among his best. I have never been disappointed in his writings and look gorward to the next one.

The second George Smiley novel was written shortly after the John Le Carre' debut Call For The Dead. It is a mystery instead of a spy novel, and Smiley is a duck out of water as he looks into the death of a teacher's wife at a stuffy boys' school. It is hard to imagine this is the same writer who released the landmark The Spy Who Came In From The Cold a year later. Yet some of the same themes of his later Circus stories are present; the situation is not what it appears and those in authority are unworthy of their positions. It is a rather odd entry in the Le Carre' canon, but worth reading.

The book is a good read.Once again in the world of George Smiley, John le Carre brings us to world surrounded murder, deceit, and the prejudices between social classes.A good character of what a person can do regardless regardless of the consequences.

I'm re-reading all of Le Carre's works, this time on my NOOK instead of the paper version.  I had almost forgotten this particular novel, which is more of a detective mystery than a spy novel.  It really develops the Smiley character and it's superb--worth a read if you haven't already, worth a re-read if, like me, you'redoing a retrospective for whatever reason.
