George Smiley has become acting Chief of the Circus, or rather what remains of it. For the credibility of the British Secret Service has been shattered by his unmasking of a traitor within. It is being starved of funds by Whitehall, and sidelined by its American cousins. Smiley's appointment, therefore, seems more like retribution than promotion. Yet from the first he goes onto the attack. His adversary is Karla, work name of the Soviet case officer who masterminded the Circus's ruin. His battleground is Hong Kong, and his choice of weapons is the Honourable Gerald Westerby, Eastem hand and Fleet Street hack. 575pp. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
