THE EIGHTH GEORGE SMILEY NOVEL The Cold War is over and Ned has been demoted to the training academy. He asks his old mentor, George Smiley, to address his passing-out class.

There are no laundered reminiscences; Smiley speaks the truth - perhaps the last the students will ever hear.

As they listen, Ned recalls his own painful triumphs and inglorious failures, in a career that took him from the Western Isles of Scotland to Hamburg and from Israel to Cambodia.

He asks himself: Did it do any good? What did it do to me? And what will happen to us now? In this eighth Smiley novel, the great spy gives his own humane and unexpected answers. 'Powerful ... Remarkable ... Magisterial' The New York Times
