The second part of the Karla trilogy. Smiley is trying to put the
Circus back together after the revelation of the mole.
When a situation arises in Hong Kong, Smiley sends Jerry
Westerby into a murkier, dirtier situation than
either man anticipates.
Dramatised by Shaun McKenna in three episodes
"I chose the secret road because it seemed to lead straightest
and furthest towards my country’s goal. The enemy in
those days was someone we could point at and read about
in the papers. Today, all I know is that I have learned to
interpret the whole of life in terms of conspiracy."
