Abstract:

Paris, London, Germany, and Switzerland are the settings for a tale of espionage in which a final, conclusive confrontation takes place between George Smiley and his Russian adversary, Karla.

In London at dead of night, an old spy (considered senile by some) is shot in the fact at point-blank range. George Smiley is officially retires, but he is summoned by the news. Lured back to active service, Smiley skillfully maneuvers his people into crisscrossing Paris, London, Germany, and Switzerland as he prepares for his own final, inevitable duel on the Berlin border with his Soviet counterpart and archenemy, Karla. -- adapted from back cover
