Call for the Dead, CD-Audio


"Call for the Dead", set in London in the late 1950s, finds George Smiley engaged in the humdrum job of security vetting.

But when a Foreign Office civil servant commits suicide after an apparently unproblematic interview, Smiley is baffled.

Refusing to believe that Fennan shot himself soon after making a cup of cocoa and asking the exchange to telephone him in the morning, Smiley decides to investigate - only to uncover a murderous conspiracy with its roots in his own secret wartime past.

Starring the award-winning Simon Russell Beale as Smiley, and with a distinguished cast including Kenneth Cranham, Eleanor Bron and Anna Chancellor, this tense, thrilling dramatisation perfectly captures the atmosphere of le Carre's masterful debut novel.
