Over the course of his seemingly irreproachable life, Magnus Pym has been all things to all people: a devoted family man, a trusted colleague, a loyal friend—and the perfect spy. But in the wake of his estranged father’s death, Magnus vanishes, and the British Secret Service is up in arms. Is it grief, or is the reason for his disappearance more sinister? And who is the mysterious man with the sad moustache who also seems to be looking for Magnus?

Editorial Reviews

"Le Carre again masterfully chronicles the dangerous game-playing world of international espionage." - Publishers Weekly

"Only le Carré could write a spy novel in which betraying one’s country could become a life-affirming action. Far more than a thriller, A Perfect Spy is a meditation on the problem of identity in a complex world." - Booklist Online

"[The] long memoir sections allow le Carré to write his richest, most unabashedly Dickensian prose yet: occasionally self-conscious or precious, often stirring, magical, gravely joyous." - Kirkus Reviews
