The undisputed master returns with a riveting new book—his first Smiley novel in more than
twenty-five years

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 scrutinized by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no
patience with its justifications.

Interweaving past with present so that each may tell its own intense story, John le Carré has spun
a single plot as ingenious and thrilling as the two predecessors on which it looks back: The Spy
Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. In a story resonating with tension, humor
and moral ambivalence, le Carré and his narrator Peter Guillam present the reader with a legacy
of unforgettable characters old and new.
