Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is an espionage classic by the author John LeCarre. This spy thriller pits
George Smiley - a retired British Secret Service agent - against a mole in
British intelligence. A Soviet double agent has penetrated the
highest levels of British intelligence and George has been brought
back out of retirement to uncover him.
The novel was wrote in 1974. Interwoven into the book are
themes of friendship, secrecy, infidelity, patriotism, and betrayal.
Smiley narrows the potential mole suspects to four high-ranking
intelligence officers and they are given the code-names of Tinker,
Tailor, Soldier and Spy.
This book has been called one of the best
spy novels ever. This is a complicated book and sometimes hard
to follow. I have read it a least three times and it is always
enjoyable. You can't go wrong!
