We are very saddened to hear of the death of David Cornwell, better known by his pen name of John le Carre.
John le Carre was a British author who worked for both the Security Service and the Secret Intelligence Service before becoming a full-time author.
His arguably best known title is Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy which was made into BBC miniseries in 1979 and a film of the same name in 2011 featuring the famous faces of Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch. John le Carre made a cameo in the film.
