Mystery & Suspense • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1961

In his first of many thrillers, John le Carré introduces premier super spy George Smiley, the seemingly bland intelligence officer with the rapier-sharp mind and tiger-like instincts. Ralph Cosham is the perfect choice to guide listeners through a web of international intrigue that sprints from Nazi Germany to Cold War Russia and England. His understated eloquence calls to mind dashing heroes in smoking jackets and the terrifying consequences of picking the wrong side. Cosham’s impeccable elocution matches the author’s astounding presentation of details in such a way that, while listeners might not figure out the puzzle, they'll enjoy the struggle to the end.
