Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is one of a continuing sequence of Le Carre's Smiley novels set in the world of post World War II espionage as the cold war rages. The books have received a new lease of life through these exquisite Radio Four dramatisations, although they are also excellent in their own right. My husband and I have been listening from the beginning and it is fantastic that the audio cds come out so soon after the radio broadcast so we can listen again and again. Simon Russell Beale is superb as Smiley and his wonderful acting skills come across as well on radio as they do on stage and screen. This volume has an excellent supporting cast including the fantastic Hugh Bonneville, and they are a delight to listen to. Highly recommended.
