    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.

    Walter says: "Great novel, but not Smiley..."
    "A breathless surprise"

    What made the experience of listening to The Spy Who Came in from the Cold the most enjoyable?

    The readers change of voice always left me knowing who was speaking. Michael Jayston has a great reading voice.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, because you always suspected the whole story was a put up job, but just how much is not made known until the very end.


    Have you listened to any of Michael Jayston’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No - I am new to the audio book experience.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending absolutely stunned me. Spy is an excellent book and I hope my husband can listen to it alwo.
