Summary
In the wake of a demoralizing infiltration by a Soviet double agent, George Smiley has been made ringmaster of the Circus, aka the British Secret Service. Determined to restore his organization's health and reputation and bent on revenge, Smiley goes on the offensive. Salvaging what he can of the Service's ravaged network of spies and summoning back a few trustworthy old colleagues, he works them and himself around the clock, searching for a whisper of a clue that will lead him back to his opposite number: Karla, the Soviet officer who masterminded the infamous treachery. Smiley thrusts his own handpicked operative into action: Jerry Westerby, the "Honourable Schoolboy, " is dispatched to the Far East. A burial ground of British, French, and American colonial cultures, the region is a fabled testing ground of patriotic allegiances. A new showdown is about to begin
