The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

Novel, Spy fiction by John Le Carre, Τζον Λε Καρρέ


When the last agent under his command is killed in Berlin, Alec Leamas, weary and disillusioned, is called back to London by his spymaster, Control, hoping to finally come in from the cold. Instead, Control has one last assignment for Leamas: to adopt the role of a disgraced agent and return behind the Iron Curtain as bait to bring down the head of East German intelligence. Layering plot over plot, John le Carre reveals a dirty game of betrayal and assumed identity in which individuals are expendable and neither side is honorable.
