Return. The return of George Smiley after two and a half decades is reason enough to read John LeCarré's novel titled, A Legacy of Spies. While it is Smiley's colleague, Peter Guillam, who takes center stage in this novel, all that these cold warriors did in the past is now under scrutiny by a new regime, and the blending of past and present in this novel will appeal to most leCarré fans. There is a legacy at stake and both Smiley and Guillam want that legacy protected and preserved.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
