It would have been an easy job for the Circus: a can of film couriered from Helsinki to London. In the past the Circus handled all things political, while the Department dealt with matters military.

Avery must infiltrate the East and restore his masters' former glory.

London sends Alan Turner to control the damage, but he soon realizes that neither side really wants Leo found--alive.

The man he knew as "Control" is dead, and the young Turks who forced him out now run the Circus.

Relying only on his wits and a small, loyal cadre, Smiley recognizes the hand of Karla--his Moscow Centre nemesis--and sets a trap to catch the traitor.
