George Smiley is your main Character and its set in an English School
It is well written
Characters are well developed
The story lines intermingles with other asides very well
Not the best La Carre book but definitely worth a read if this is your genre
Not a spy story for those expecting such.
Much in the Poirot. Lord Peter Wimsey style
Worth a read
A book that you could say was of it's time but not yet dated
Superb as ever,
