Overview
#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - "Intriguing . . . magisterial . . . The many ingredients are skillfully marshaled. . . . Lucidly and elegantly controlled."--The New York Times Book Review

The rules of the game, and of the world, have changed. Old enemies now yield to glasnost and perestroika. The killing shadows of the Cold War are flooded with light. The future is unfathomable.

To train new spies for this uncertain future, one must show them the past. Enter the man called Ned, the loyal and shrewd veteran of the Circus. With the inspiration of his inscrutable mentor George Smiley, Ned thrills all as he recounts forty exhilarating years of Cold War espionage across Europe and the Far East--an electrifying, clandestine tour of honorable old knights and notorious traitors, triumph and failure, passion and hate, suspicion, sudden death, and old secrets that haunt us still.

Praise for The Secret Pilgrim

"Scorching . . . fascinating . . . seductive . . . a dazzler."--Entertainment Weekly

"Powerful . . . a highly absorbing tale."--Newsday

"Extraordinary."--USA Today
