"[Le Carr�'s] novels are so brilliant because they're emotionally and psychologically absolutely true, but of course they're novels." --New York Times Book Review

"Le Carr�'s prose remains brisk and lapidary. His wit is intact and rolls as if on casters... I might as well say it: to read this simmering novel is to come in from the cold." --New York Times

"Le Carr� is such a gifted storyteller that he interlaces the cards in his deck so they fit not simply with this book, but with the earlier ones as well." --The Atlantic

"A kind of eulogy for the present as well as the past, A Legacy of Spies is haunting." --Chicago Tribune

"Swift and satisfying." --USA Today

"We wish for more complexity and logic in our politics, so we look to make political art that is logical and complex: a genre defined by John le Carr�." --New Republic

"The spy master's latest Smiley novel entwines today's world with a lost one... Ingenious."
--Washington Post

"Intricately plotted and richly satisfying." --Star Tribune

"Gripping."--The Christian Science Monitor

"[Le Carr�] can convey a character in a sentence, land an emotional insight in [a] phrase & demolish an ideology in a paragraph." --Publishers Weekly (starred)

"Any reader who knows le Carr�'s earlier work, and quite a few who don't, will assume that any attempt to second-guess the mandarins of the Service will backfire. The miracle is that the author can revisit his best-known story and discover layer upon layer of fresh deception beneath it."

Praise for John le Carr�

"One of our great writers of moral ambiguity, a tireless explorer of that darkly contradictory no-man's land."
--Los Angeles Times

"No other writer has charted--pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers--the public and secret histories of his times."
--The Guardian (UK)

"I would suggest immortality for John le Carr�, who I believe one of the most intelligent and entertaining writers working today."
--Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune

"The constant flow of emotion lifts le Carr� not only above all modern suspense novelists, but above most novelists now practicing."
--Financial Times

"A writer of towering gifts."
--The Independent (UK)
