Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, is living out his old age on the family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London. The reason? His Cold War past has come back to claim him. Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley, and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinised under disturbing criteria by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications.

Reviews
I enjoyed reading A Legacy of Spies by Le Carre. Its heavy reading but at the same time Le Carre's writing style makes it easy. His recollection at his current age is remarkable, although I acknowledge he had help from researchers, access to letters, confidential data, etc. but still, amazing in its detail. It's always interesting to read about Spies and what they do for the 'Greater Good', but I'll never understand how they justify some things fully.
