RARA-AVIS: Re: RIP John Gardner

John Le Carre's amazing "Spy Who Came in from the Cold" is a good example of an espionage novel as noir. The spy in this one, Alex Leamus, ends up paying a dear price for living a life of cynicism, deceit, betrayal, even if he did it in service of his country. One of my favorites.
