Reviews


The result is both a riveting reprise of the Smiley novels and a new articulation of le Carre’s theme: spying is as morally bankrupt as the ideologies it serves... He can covey a character in a sentence, land an emotional insight in the smallest phrase—and demolish an ideology in a paragraph.

Publishers Weekly


To read this simmering novel is to come in from the cold.


The New York Times


Fans of le Carré’s earlier fiction — or their various film incarnations — will feast at the historical banquet that is 'A Legacy of Spies.'

LA Times

John le Carré's A Legacy of Spies stands with the spymaster's best

A Legacy of Spies functions best as a reward for loyal readers: This is for those of us who have sat with Smiley for hours as he pored over intel in an office where the blasted radiator is broken and loved every damn second of it.


Entertainment Weekly


The ingenuity and skill with which the thing is brought off is breathtaking – really, not since The Spy has le Carré exercised his gift as a storyteller so powerfully and to such thrilling effect.
