The enduring novel by one of our greatest storytellers.
George Smiley, who is a troubled man of infinite compassion, is also a single-mindedly ruthless adversary as a spy.
The scene which he enters is a Cold War landscape of moles and lamplighters, scalp-hunters and pavement artists, where men are turned, burned or bought for stock.
Smiley's mission is to catch a Moscow Centre mole burrowed thirty years deep into the Circus itself.
