Brilliantly plotted and morally complex, this "New York Times "bestseller is the second installment in the Karla Trilogy featuring George Smiley, from the author of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy "and "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold " 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 Carre's renowned and "New York Times "bestselling Karla Trilogy, the follow-up to "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, "which was the inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film starring Gary Oldman as George Smiley, Colin Firth and Tom Hardy. With an introduction by the author.
