- According to the publisher the novel is narrated by Smiley’s trusted ally, Peter Guillam, who has been summoned to London out of his retirement.
‘His Cold War past has come back to claim him,’ a spokesman for publishers Viking said.
‘Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinized under disturbing criteria by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications.’
Its plot appears to reflect the real-life situation in Whitehall - a report by MPs published last week warned the Foreign Office’s expertise in Russian affairs has ‘disintegrated’ and urged the government to urgently recruit staff with knowledge of the Kremlin’s habits.
