Good introduction to Smiley,
By A Customer
This review is from: Call for the Dead (Lamplighter) (Hardcover)
This is a fairly easy read, but a good one. It is an ideal introduction to both John le Carre and George Smiley. Although set in the cold war it is more of a detective novel than an espionage novel. Smiley sets out to discover why a routine and harmless security interview leads to suicide.
