Alastair Benn writes: ‘John Le Carré’s novel ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold’ seemed to emerge fully formed from the Berlin sky, a spy novel of rare quality.  In his newest work, ‘A Legacy of Spies’, Le Carré revisits the novel that brought him fame.  For the hardened Le Carré fan, it is a chance to revisit much-loved characters such as George Smiley, Alec Leamas and Peter Guillam.  For the uninitiated, it is an elegant and accomplished introduction to Le Carré’s fictional universe . . ‘
