    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 complex and intriguing story"

    What did you love best about The Spy Who Came in from the Cold?

    The plot was most enjoyable. I envisioned Richard Burton in each scene, since I had previously viewed the movie.


    What other book might you compare The Spy Who Came in from the Cold to and why?

    Perhaps "The Day of the Jackal." Both books were very thoughtful and precise in articulating the characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The opening scene with the spy crossing the check point.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I would state that LeCarre is a thinking person's author.
