With only one week to go to the big day it’s time to open another window on our Literary Advent Calendar. Today’s book choice comes from Graeme Shimmin, author of A Kill in the Morning.
Graeme has chosen Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy by John le Carre.
Graeme says: ‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is the best spy novel ever written and transcends its genre to such an extent that it’s one of the best novels ever written. A meditation on the nature of trust disguised as a thriller, it has everything: characters, action, romance, mystery, twists. This novel is nothing short of a complete masterpiece.’
