The second book in le Carré's 'Karla Trilogy', The Honourable Schoolboy is a new addition to Penguin Modern Classics.

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.

The Honourable Schoolboy is remarkable and thrilling, one of three books (together with Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Smiley's People ) to feature the legendary clash between Smiley and Karla, two brilliant spymasters on opposite sides of the Cold War.
