    Alec Leamas has ended his time in Berlin. Or his time has ended him. The last of his Eastern agents has been killed, like the others, by the Abteilung. Back at the Circus, Leamas is put on the shelf. He turns to drunkenness and dishonesty and finally disappears from view, a seemingly broken man. But unknown to anyone except George Smiley and his master, Control, Leamas has been given his toughest mission ever. He will have to be himself but more so.

    Pita says: "Outstanding Novel, Brilliantly Read"
    "Gripping Cold War thriller"

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold to be better than the print version?

    I first read 'The Spy Who Came in From the Cold' in print when I was 12 or 13 and it was the best seller everyone was talking about. In print I tended to rush ahead to see what happened, but the audio version slows you down to savour Le Carre's writing.


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

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy - a complex story with double-crosses and suspense.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    An early scene, when the double agent crosses the border into West Germany on his bicycle.


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

    Oh yes - it will keep you sitting in your car listening to the recording, long after you've pulled into the driveway.
