A number-one New York Times best seller for 34 weeks and the book that launched John le Carré's career worldwide.
In the shadow of the newly erected Berlin Wall, Alec Leamas watches as his last agent is shot dead by East German sentries. For Leamas, the head of Berlin Station, the Cold War is over. As he faces the prospect of retirement or worse - a desk job - Control offers him a unique opportunity for revenge. Assuming the guise of an embittered and dissolute ex-agent, Leamas is set up to trap Mundt, the deputy director of the East German Intelligence Service - with himself as the bait. In the background is George Smiley, ready to make the game play out just as Control wants.
Setting a standard that has never been surpassed, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold is a devastating tale of duplicity and espionage.

Great novel, but not Smiley...
John Le Carre is my favourite author and I have read most of his books including this one and I enjoyed the audio version just as much as the written one.
The narrator was excellent and the story was engrossing right from the beginning.
Highly recommend it specially if you are a fan of Le Carre.

not really - I like to stretch out the good books so I enjoy it longer rather than finishing them in one sitting
