He begins to have friendly encounters with a beautiful woman who often spends nights alone in the hotel and they strike up conversations concerning their unusual professions.

    Summary

    In the chaos following Bill Haydon's exposure, the Circus has never known such uncertainty. For Peter, trying desperately to pretend that he's come to terms with the betrayal, the stillness and the silence doesn't make for good company. Thankfully, George Smiley does.

    Summary

    Falling against Magnus came naturally, just as he supposed it felt natural for Magnus to wrap an arm around Axel’s waist and to press their bodies against each other, front-to-front. Again their eyes met. Magnus’ looked between Axel’s eyes and his lips. I could say anything, and Magnus would not be pulled from this moment. I could say something and make him smile, but he could not look at me like this if he were.

    Summary

    The scars that covered Axel's sides didn’t make his skin feel any stronger, although Pym felt they should. Scars were meant to be rough, like leather. Axel’s only felt fragile, like folded paper.

    Summary

    "Tell me, did Jim come to see you before he left on that Testify mission?"

    "Yes, he did, as a matter of fact."

    "To say what?"

    For a long, long while Haydon hesitated, then did not answer. But the answer was written there all the same, in the sudden emptying of his eyes, in the shadow of guilt that crossed his thin face. He came to warn you, Smiley thought; because he loved you. To warn you; just as he came to tell me that Control was mad, but couldn't find me because I was in Berlin. Jim was watching your back for you right till the end.

    What did Jim and Bill say that night? And, perhaps more importantly, what did they not say?
