In the wake of a demoralizing infiltration by a Soviet double agent, George Smiley has been made ringmaster of the Circus, aka the British Secret Service. Determined to restore his organization s health and reputation and bent on revenge, Smiley goes on the offensive. Salvaging what he can of the Service s ravaged network of spies and summoning back a few trustworthy old colleagues, he works them and himself around the clock, searching for a whisper of a clue that will lead him back to his opposite number: Karla, the Soviet officer who masterminded the infamous treachery.

Smiley thrusts his own handpicked operative into action: Jerry Westerby, the Honourable Schoolboy, is dispatched to the Far East. A burial ground of British, French, and American colonial cultures, the region is a fabled testing ground of patriotic allegiances. A new showdown is about to begin.

Can someone PLEASE indicate up-front that this is an audiobook - I had to dig into the details to find this out and it shouldn't be that easy to order the wrong format!

The recording is awful. It is recorded too "hot"; it distorts and it appears to be recorded on an old portable cassette player. It requires a great deal of fiddling with the equalizer in iTunes. I am mostly blind, so all this fussing is very tedious. I stopped listening to it after the second disc.
