Call for the Dead: A George Smiley Novel

Call for the Dead: A George Smiley Novel - John le Carré It's a masterful debut novel by the king of the 'realistic' spy novel. It has a simple enough plot, albeit full of twists and crosses, and it establishes characters we'll come to know better later on down the road - or, as the case may be, characters we already know and now have the pleasure of seeing in their earlier incarnations. It's a fascinating comparison to the new Bond movie (which I also saw this weekend) and the distinct pleasures of both are well worth your time.More about Smiley & le Carré at RB: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-so
