Call for the Dead – John le Carré

Opis towaru

The first of his peerless novels of Cold War espionage and international intrigue, Call for the Dead is also the debut of John le Carré’s masterful creation George Smiley.

After a routine security check by George Smiley, civil servant Samuel Fennan apparently kills himself. When Smiley finds Circus head Maston is trying to blame him for the man’s death, he begins his own investigation, meeting with Fennan’s widow to find out what could have led him to such desperation. But on the very day that Smiley is ordered off the enquiry he receives an urgent letter from the dead man. Do the East Germans – and their agents – know more about this man’s death than the Circus previously imagined? Le Carré’s first book, Call for the Dead, introduced the tenacious and retiring George Smiley in a gripping tale of espionage and deceit.

If you enjoyed Call for the Dead, you might like le Carré’s The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.

Call for the Dead – John le Carre

Opis towaru

An anonymous letter had accused Foreign Office man Samuel Fennan of being a communist. George Smiley, assigned by the Secret Service to vet Fennan, had assured him he had nothing to fear. No one believed this nonsense. But clearly something had rattled Fennan, for a day after the interview he killed himself.

Smiley is told by his angry superiors to fix this mess. The last thing anyone wants right now is a scandal. It is immediately obvious to Smiley, however, that the suicide story doesn’t make sense.

Piece by piece he uncovers a conspiracy – one originating in East Germany and led by a wartime ally of Smiley. To expose it, he must turn a former friend into a deadly enemy …
