Summary

"It’s an emergency, George. You remember Vladimir? George, are you awake? You remember the old General?"
The phone call that dragged George Smiley, acting Chief of the Circus, from his bed was a plea to return to active service. But only to bury the case, not to solve it....
George Smiley was summoned from his dubious retirement by two seemingly unconnected events - an old woman in Paris is promised the return of a daughter she will never see, and a handover is to take place on a steamer in Hamburg.

Critic reviews

"An achievement of subtlety and power of which few novelists would be capable. It is the best single thing le Carré has done." ( The Financial Times)
