Description

In the shadow of the newly erected Berlin Wall, Alec Leamas watches as his last agent is shot dead by East German sentries. For Leamas, the head of Berlin Station, the Cold War is over. As he faces the prospect of retirement or worse—a desk job—Control offers him a unique opportunity for revenge. Assuming the guise of an embittered and dissolute ex-agent, Leamas is set up to trap Mundt, the deputy director of the East German Intelligence Service—with himself as the bait. In the background is George Smiley, ready to make the game play out just as Control wants. Setting a standard that has never been surpassed, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a devastating tale of duplicity and espionage.

      • content: Alec Leamas's cadre of double agents in East Berlin has been destroyed, and he's at loose ends. His new mission is to ferret out who is killing the spies, all while he pretends to be disgraced. This three-part radio dramatization of the classic Cold War spy novel is a must-hear performance. Pared down to dialogue and sound effects, this tale of deception draws the listener into the drama one carefully accented word at a time. Who are the spies? What is the truth? How does one live with the secret knowledge of spying? Simon Russell Beale and his colleagues bring this story of double agents and betrayal to life, capturing all the tension of the Cold War, spymasters, and life behind the Berlin Wall. With an even pace and clear enunciation, Beale and company capture the paranoia of the Communist era with hushed tones and appropriate doublespeak. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
