Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy [Deluxe Edition]

John le Carré

The Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Deluxe edition includes the following features: the Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy theatrical trailer; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: From book to Screen, a behind-the-scenes look inside the film; Movie Stills from Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy; the Movie Production Notes for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy; the first chapter of The Honourable Schoolboy, book two of the Karla Trilogy; The Smiley Guide; and a transcript of BBC Radio 4's interview with John le Carré.

"It's the oldest question of all, George. Who can spy on the spies?"

The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement—especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley traces the breach back to Karla—his Moscow Centre nemesis—and sets a trap to catch the traitor.

The first novel in John le Carré's celebrated Karla trilogy, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a heart-stopping tale of international intrigue.

"Stunning"—The Wall Street Journal
