Description
From the New York Times bestselling author of  Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy ;  The Spy Who Came in from the Cold ; and  The Night Manager , now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carr#65533;'s new novel , A Legacy of Spies,  will be available from Viking in Fall 2017. "Go back to Whitehall and look for more spies on your drawing boards."

George Smiley is no one's idea of a spy--which is perhaps why he's such a natural. But Smiley apparently made a mistake. After a routine security interview, he concluded that the affable Samuel Fennan had nothing to hide. Why, then, did the man from the Foreign Office shoot himself in the head only hours later? Or did he?

The heart-stopping tale of intrigue that launched both novelist and spy,  Call for the Dead  is an essential introduction to le Carr#65533;'s chillingly amoral universe.
