A very junior agent answers Vladimir's call, but it could have been the Chief of the Circus himself.

Although George Smiley (code name: Max) is officially retired, he's summoned to identify the body now bearing Moscow Centre's bloody imprimatur. As he works to unearth his friend's fatal secrets, Smiley heads inexorably toward one final reckoning with Karla his dark grail.

In "Smiley's People," master storyteller and "New York Times "bestselling author of "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold "and "Our Kind of Traitor" John le Carre brings his acclaimed Karla Trilogy, to its unforgettable, spellbinding conclusion.
