Le Carré’s fictionalized account—informed by his own experiences working in British Intelligence at the time—of the mole hunt for the Cambridge Five spies. Instead of Blunt, Philby, Burgess, MacLean and Cairncross, we have “the Circus,” le Carré’s fictional Secret intelligence Service, with George Smiley being called out of retirement to locate the mole.
First edition, first printing, near fine condition, in a dust jacket in archival acetate cover. 1974.
