Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is a classic cold war era spy thriller and the 5th George Smiley novel by John Le Carré. Originally released in 1974, this reformat and re-release in audiobook format from Dreamscape is due out 25th June 2024.

This is one of a handful of truly iconic spy thrillers from an author who literally shaped the entire genre. George Smiley is now sure beyond doubt that there's a mole in the highest levels of British Intelligence planted there and moving up the ranks for decades and his assignment is to root them out and remove the threat - permanently.

Released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original publication, this unabridged audiobook has a run time of 11 hours 52 minutes and is beautifully read by Simon Vance. He has a classically trained voice with well modulated RP voice and delineates the various accents and a range of ages very well. He's easy to listen to and does credit to the read. Sound and production quality are high throughout.

Five stars. Classic literature, very well done. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
