It is a beleaguered and betrayed Secret Service that has been put in the care of George Smiley. A mole has been uncovered at the organisation's highest levels - and its agents across the world put in grave danger. But untangling the traitor's web gives Smiley a chance to attack his Russian counterpart, Karla. And part-time spy Jerry Westerby is the weapon at Smiley's disposal.

5.0 Honourable School Boy
Another good production by the Smiley Players. This radio drama more than a straight forward audio book. The cast is great, especially Simon Russell Beale who plays Smiley. It is more of morality tales that will make you think. If you like Dowton Abbey, you might want to check this out as Hugh B...
