A murder of quality is as you would expect a murder Mystery
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

I purchased a series of John le Carre audio books for my late father-in-law, whose vision had become impaired, preventing him from deciphering words written upon the page.

During the relatively short time between purchase and his passing, he'd regularly ask for one the purchased audio books to be played, whether it be through his hi-fi, or his personal CD player, so I can only assume he enjoyed them.

An interesting Who Done it.
Well written.
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

Bought this for a long journey to Orkney, it's a well 'acted' story though the plot demands concentration, which I should have guessed as it's Le Carre, so don't buy this for easy listening while driving. Otherwise it's a perfectly ok story which has been well produced.

As a fan of John Le Carré I'm particularly happy to have found this recording, as it shows George Smiley in a non-spying role.
