Overview: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

Not all spy thrillers are just about fancy gadgets or sleek spies, or adrenaline rushes of the macho-kind. There is more to this genre - something dark, deep and mysterious. Espionage foremost commands secrecy and minimum divulgence of information. The Spy Who Came In From The Cold is about a believable, taciturn spy who wants to quit the game and go back to the warmth of his home, but cannot. This book has been written by noted spy thriller author John Le' Carre.

Plot of the Novel

Set in the period when the Cold War was at its peak and the Berlin Wall stood in all its glory, Alec Leamans, a British Spy is sent to acquire information from East Germany. However, he is forced to abort the mission half-way owing to his entire team getting caught and murdered. This majorly dents his confidence, and he wants to quit the business of espionage. The head of the British overseas intelligence service, Control, however, wants him to go on another top secret mission to get critical information about Mundt, the chief of East German Intelligence. This story about a top British spy in USSR-controlled East Germany, trying to secure valuable counter-intelligence information, is highly captivating and entertaining. The story is full of unimaginable twists and sub-plots that make this novel an engaging read.

  1.  Truly a modern classic 5 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    Le Carre is quite possibly the most complex, hard to decipher author out there. His awkward style of writing may throw off a lot of people, and his constant shifts in story may keep people away from his writing.

    However, this is one book everyone should invest time in. A very few people get spy novels right. Le Carre not only gets them right, he pretty much defines how spy novels should be written. This book is unpredictable, throws in surprises almost on every page, and lays out a story which really cannot be rivaled.

    Read this, and keep this on your shelf for life. They write like this anymore, and they don't create characters like George Smiley any more
