About A Legacy of Spies

Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, has retired to his family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London. The reason? His Cold War past has come back to claim him. Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London are to be scrutinised by a generation with no memory of the Cold War. Somebody must be made to pay for innocent blood once spilt in the name of the greater good. Interweaving past with present so that each may tell its own story, John le Carré has given us a novel of superb and enduring quality.

Artist Bio

John le Carré is a British author, born in 1931. Although, his real name is David John Moore Cornwell, John le Carré was his author pseudonym. He attended the universities of Bern and Oxford, and also taught at Eton. Also, during the 1950s and 60s, he worked in British Intelligence (MI5 and MI6), which then inspired him to write espionage novels. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in From the Cold became an international best-seller. He then left MI6 to become a full-time novelist. Le Carré is now recognised world-wide and is incredibly well-established in his field. Some of his most famous works include Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (1974), The Night Manager (1993), The Spy Who Came in From the Cold (1963), and A Perfect Spy (1986).
