Michael Jayston's narration brings Alex Leamas alive for any listener who wants to delve into the early days of Cold War Berlin and Britain's inscrutable Service. This title and Call For The Dead, also narrated by Jayston, provide a delightful re-aquaintance with George Smiley for his many fans. Jayston captures le Carré's brilliance in this classic espionage tale which ages yet never seems to age. With steady pacing, a fine command of nuance for the characters' voices and impeccable diction, Jayston is outstanding. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 95]
