From the Inside Flap:

Pre-eminent spy novelist John le Carre weaves an intricate spell of suspicion and deceit as three men play a double-sided game of war.

It's been twenty years since the end of World War II and things just haven't been the same in British intelligence. But now comes word that Russian missiles have been sighted in East Germany. Suddenly, the Department's old juices begin to flow as the Cold War rapidly heats up. And three British subjects find themselves undertaking the must perilous mission of their careers: Avery, young and on the way up, willing to sacrifice his marriage, his honor, even his manhood for the "greater good"; Leiser, middle-aged and on the way down, a human pawn in a deadly contest; and Leclerc, the old man at the top, looking for his last chance at glory.

The Russia House, The Fledgling Spy, The Spy Who Came of Age and The Spy in His Prime by John le Carre are all available from Random House AudioBooks.

About the Author:

John le Carre was born in 1931. His third novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, secured him a worldwide reputation, which was consolidated by the acclaim for his trilogy Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People. His recent novels include A Most Wanted Man, Our Kind of Traitor and A Delicate Truth.
