    A very junior agent answers Vladimir's call, but it could have been the Chief of the Circus himself. No one at the British Secret Service considers the old spy to be anything except a senile has-been who can't give up the game - until he's shot in the face at point-blank range. Although George Smiley (code-name: Max) is officially retired, he's summoned to identify the body now bearing Moscow Centre's bloody imprimatur. As he works to unearth his friend's fatal secrets, Smiley heads inexorably toward one final reckoning.

    What did you love best about Smiley's People?

    The story is a virtual page-turner and the characters are so well developed. I'm a big fan of Le Carre and while this may not be my favorite of his, it's still really well written and performed here. Loved every minute of it.


    What about Michael Jayston’s performance did you like?

    He does an excellent job on bringing the characters to life and giving them their own personalities without sinking into making bad impressions of different characters. Really well done.

    Story

    Inspector John Rebus has messed up badly this time, so badly that he's been sent to a kind of reform school for damaged cops. While there among the last-chancers known as "resurrection men," he joins a covert mission to gain evidence of a drug heist orchestrated by three of his classmates. But the group has been assigned an unsolved murder that may have resulted from Rebus's own mistake.

    Andrew Lim says: "Another great story from the Rebus series"

    I really enjoy the human frailties apparent in all of Rankin's Rebus series. The story and narrative are easy to follow but have enough twists and turns to keep interest.
    The narrator is excellent.

    In the continuation of his fictional autobiography begun in I, Claudius, Robert Graves tells the dramatic story of Claudius' thirteen-year reign as Emperor of Rome. A must listen before running out to see the new film Gladiator!

    No

    None really
