Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (Audio)

John Le Carre

-  

Smiley, wrestling with retirement and disillusionment, is summoned to a secret meeting with a member of the Cabinet Office. Evidence has emerged that the Circus has been infiltrated at the highest level by a Russian agent. 'Find the mole, George. Clean the stables. Do whatever is necessary'. Reluctantly Smiley agrees, and so embarks on a dark journey into his past - a past filled with love, duplicity and betrayal. Starring the award-winning Simon Russell Beale as Smiley, and with a star cast including Anna Chancellor, Alex Jennings, Kenneth Cranham and Bill Paterson, this epic dramatisation brilliantly depicts the complicated moral dilemmas of those who practise post-war espionage and illuminates the murky corners of le Carre's classic spy thriller - the first in the Karla trilogy. '...a worthy audio version of the seminal spy drama, brilliantly depicting the complicated moral dilemmas of post-war espionage, and allowing Beale room to shine as the character of Smiley really comes into his own' - "Herts Advertiser". 'beautifully paced in a dramatisation which captures the essence of the book whilst working supremely well in its own right in the radio medium' - "Chichester Observer". 'This period dramatisation could not be bettered' - "Observer".
