John le Carré

John le Carré turned the spy novel into a literary art form, with his cleverly plotted Cold War thrillers.  His own experience as a British agent (he was recruited whilst at Oxford) gave his novels the stamp of authority.

Graham Greene described Le Carré's 1963 novel, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, which introduced us to George Smiley, as the best spy story he had ever read.

George Smiley, played to perfection by Alec Guinness in Smiley's People, is another espionage classic, in both book and TV form. The recent BBC adaptation of his bestselling The Night Manager, became a global TV sensation, starring Hugh Laurie as the ruthless arms dealer, Richard Roper.
