Book Club reads "The Spy Who Came in from the Cold"

The October read for the book club is “The Spy Who Came in from the Cold” by John le Carré.

Alec Leamas is tired. It’s the 1960s, he’s been out in the cold for years, spying in the shadows of the Berlin Wall for his British masters. He’s seen too many good agents murdered for their troubles. Now Control wants to bring him in at last – but only after one final assignment. He must travel deep into the heart of Communist Germany…
