A LEGACY OF SPIES Smiley, Book 9

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tom Hollander

Mystery & Suspense • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

The combined performances of author John le Carré and narrator Tom Hollander in this new George Smiley espionage novel are a tour de force to be savored and cherished. Our protagonist is Peter Guillam, who, 40 years on and under interrogation, must revisit the disastrous events of THE SPY WHO CAME IN FROM THE COLD. We're back in the morally ambiguous world of Cold War spy craft as Guillam guards the old secrets while fending off doubt. Where is Smiley in this? You'll see. Hollander expertly channels the tense coiled spring of the Smiley novels, coloring with accent when necessary, using pacing and pauses to keep you from pressing "stop," and in a warm, even-toned narrative voice, audibly savors every beautiful word. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2017]
