Featuring George Smiley, this  New York Times  bestseller is the first installment in John le Carr#65533;'s acclaimed Karla Trilogy. From the author of  A Delicate Truth  and  The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.  John le Carr#65533;'s new novel, A Legacy of Spies , will be available from Viking in Fall 2017. The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus. But George Smiley isn't quite ready for retirement--especially when a pretty, would-be defector surfaces with a shocking accusation: a Soviet mole has penetrated the highest level of British Intelligence. Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla--his Moscow Centre nemesis--and sets a trap to catch the traitor.   The Oscar-nominated feature film adaptation of  Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy  is directed by Tomas Alfredson ( Let the Right One In ) and features Gary Oldman as Smiley, Academy Award winner Colin Firth ( The King's Speech ), and Tom Hardy ( Inception ).   With an introduction by the author.
