Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, 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. The reason? 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.

Excellent classic cold war spy novel. It provides a superb look at the insanity and paranoia of that period of East West conflict. The audiobook reader does a fantastic job of bringing the characters and the spirit of the time to life. Now I have to reread Le Carré's earlier books!
