Book Description


See all titles by John Le Carre.

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.

5 of 5 john lecarre November 2, 2017
Reviewer: C. Glein from Maryville, TN United States  
His name alone  tells you the subject of the books he authors....suspense, mystery, always a good story, something that seems possible to be true by the time you finish the book.  I have not read this book yet as I have several in front  of it sitting on my nightstand, and you can be sure  I'll get to Legacy of Spies in short order.  I have been reading John LeCarre 's  books for a very long time and I am happy to see one of his best characters  is back, Smiley.  I love hard boiled mysteries, spy & suspense stories always trying to figure out the endings early on, but truly enjoy the read better if I am surprised.   I read for enjoyment, to get a break from daily happenings.  We collect signed first editions, but primarily they must be something my husband or I want to read.    Enjoy what you read for pleasure,don't waste your time on anything less.
