From the New York Times bestselling author of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy ; Our Kind of Traitor ; and The Night Manager , now a television series starring Tom Hiddleston. John le Carr#65533;'s new novel , A Legacy of Spies, is now available.

As the fall of Saigon looms, master spy George Smiley must outmaneuver his Soviet counterpart on a battlefield that neither can afford to lose.

The mole has been eliminated, but the damage wrought has brought the British Secret Service to its knees. Given the charge of the gravely compromised Circus, George Smiley embarks on a campaign to uncover what Moscow Centre most wants to hide. When the trail goes cold at a Hong Kong gold seam, Smiley dispatches Gerald Westerby to shake the money tree. A part-time operative with cover as a philandering journalist, Westerby insinuates himself into a war-torn world where allegiances--and lives--are bought and sold.

Brilliantly plotted and morally complex, The Honourable Schoolboy is the second installment of John le Carr#65533;'s renowned Karla triology and a riveting portrayal of postcolonial espionage.

With an introduction by the author.

I really like the follow up, I'd expected more of a basic takeover from the old regime, have new adventures, but was pleasantly surprised to see the full ramifications of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy carried out--the entire operation has, practically, to be rebuilt, and less trustworthy, less veteran members of the circus must be relied upon.

I think, however, le Carré started to get a bit long winded. Maybe most of the book contributed to the ended, but I couldn't help feeling that some concision would have helped push the reader into the story, and make them care more.
