Description

The first of his peerless novels of Cold War espionage and international intrigue Call for the Dead is also the debut of John le Carre’s masterful creation George Smiley. After a routine security check by George Smiley civil servant Samuel Fennan apparently kills himself. When Smiley finds Circus head Maston is trying to blame him for the man’s death he begins his own investigation meeting with Fennan’s widow to find out what could have led him to such desperation. But on the very day that Smiley is ordered off the enquiry he receives an urgent letter from the dead man. Do the East Germans – and their agents – know more about this man’s death than the Circus previously imagined? Le Carre’s first book Call for the Dead introduced the tenacious and retiring George Smiley in a gripping tale of espionage and deceit. If you enjoyed Call for the Dead you might like le Carre’s The Spy Who Came in from the Cold also available in Penguin Modern Classics. ‘Intelligent thrilling surprising … makes most cloak-and-dagger stuff taste of cardboard’ Sunday Telegraph ‘Brilliant. Realistic. Constant suspense’ Observer
