John Le Carré's ninth novel is a riveting and powerful story of espionage, love, and betrayal. Twenty-six-year-old Alec Leamas is an idealist who joins the British Secret Service in order to fight for a better world. But as he quickly learns, the realities of the Cold War are brutal and unyielding. Leamas is sent to Berlin to spy on the Soviet Union, and soon falls in love with the beautiful, passionate Anna. However, his superiors warn him that she is a Soviet agent, and Leamas is forced to choose between his love and his country. As the Soviet Union tightens its grip on Berlin, Leamas must choose between betraying Anna and risking his own life. With masterful storytelling and electrifying suspense, John Le Carré brings to life the height of the Cold War and the desperate, cat-and-mouse race to win the Iron Curtain.; 8vo; 301 pages.
