Description

In the shadow of the newly erected Berlin Wall, Alec Leamas watches as his last agent is shot dead by East German sentries. For Leamas, the head of Berlin Station, the Cold War is over. As he faces the prospect of retirement or worse-- a desk job-- Control offers him a unique opportunity for revenge. Assuming the guise of an embittered and dissolute ex-agent, Leamas is set up to trap Mundt, the deputy director of the East German Intelligence Service-- with himself as the bait. In the background is George Smiley, ready to make the game play out just as Control wants. Setting a standard that has never been surpassed, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a devastating tale of duplicity and espionage.

Professional reviews

"Michael Jayston's narration brings Alex Leamas alive for any listener who wants to delve into the early days of Cold War Berlin and Britain's inscrutable Service. This title and Call For The Dead, also narrated by Jayston, provide a delightful re-aquaintance with George Smiley for his many fans. Jayston captures le CarrŽ's brilliance in this classic espionage tale which ages yet never seems to age. With steady pacing, a fine command of nuance for the characters' voices and impeccable diction, Jayston is outstanding. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
