Call for the Dead: A George Smiley Novel

Author(s): John Le Carre


From the New York Times bestselling author ofTinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy;The Spy Who Came in from the Cold; andThe Night Manager, now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carre s memoir, The Pigeon Tunnel: Stories from My Life, is now available from Viking. "Go back to Whitehall and look for more spies on your drawing boards."George Smiley is no one's idea of a spy which is perhaps why he's such a natural. But Smiley apparently made a mistake. After a routine security interview, he concluded that the affable Samuel Fennan had nothing to hide. Why, then, did the man from the Foreign Office shoot himself in the head only hours later? Or did he?

The heart-stopping tale of intrigue that launched both novelist and spy, Call for the Deadis an essential introduction to le Carre's chillingly amoral universe.
