Call for the Dead

John le Carré: Call for the Dead (USA 2012)

From the Publisher:
"Go back to Whitehall and look for more spies on your drawing boards."
George Smiley is no one's idea of a spy -- which is perhaps why he's such a natural. But Smiley apparently made a mistake. After a routine security interview, he concluded that the affable Samuel Fennan had nothing to hide. Why, then, did the man from the Foreign Office shoot himself in the head only hours later? Or did he?

The heart-stopping tale of intrigue that launched both novelist and spy, Call for the Dead is an essential introduction to le Carré's chillingly amoral universe.

John le Carré: Call for the Dead. A George Smiley Novel. Penguin, ISBN: 9780143122579 (October, 2012), 157 p., $15.00, eBook $9.99.

Call for the Dead

John le Carré: Call for the Dead (USA 2004)

From the Publisher:
With the incomparable opening chapter of Call for the Dead, titled "A Brief History of George Smiley," John Le Carré introduces his legendary spy and immediately ensnares you in the shadowy world Smiley inhabits.

Pulled back from overseas duty during World War II, Smiley was redirected to face the threats of the Cold War. He had been asked to interview Samuel Fennan of the Foreign Office after an anonymous letter accused Fennan of Communist Party membership. Smiley's report cleared him of the allegations, so he was stunned to learn that Fennan had died the day after the interview, leaving a suicide note that claimed his career had been ruined. Investigating circumstances that make no sense to him, Smiley gradually uncovers a spy ring and in so doing is led into a lethal duel of wits with the best of his war-time pupils.

Call for the Dead marks the beginning of John Le Carré's brilliant literary career, just as it launches the life of one of the most memorable fictional characters of the twentieth century.

John le Carré: Call for the Dead. The First George Smiley Novel. Foreword by P.D. James. Walker & Co., ISBN: 0802714439 (October, 2004), 151 p., $23.00.
