Call For The DeadDownloadable Audiobook - 2006
With the incomparable opening chapter of Call for the Dead, titled "A Brief History of George Smiley," John le Carré introduces his legendary spy and immediately ensnares readers in the shadowy world Smiley inhabits. The cast of characters includes a bright, twisted former hero of the German underground, a once beautiful woman with a terrifying secret, a high-ranking pompous fool of a bureaucrat, and a suspect British civil servant. The protagonist, George Smiley, is bitter, weary he has seen too much and done too much yet he cannot refuse one last desperate call for his services.
