Charles McCarry has been called the best American espionage writer who ever lived. Now, with the re-release of his classic Paul Christopher series, comes The Last Supper, a tour de force that traces the evolution of the OSS and the CIA from the aftermath of World War I through World War II, Vietnam, and the Cold War. To Paul Christopher, the world of espionage had become a region of the mad, in which men and women lived without conviction and were compelled by a craving for conspiracy. But now, he has to find the “mole” in the Outfit and demand justice from enemies, past and present. As he follows the twisting path of this secret American intelligence group, he discovers a trail of betrayal and violence that leads backward to the horrors of the Nazi era and plunges forward beyond the Vietnam War’s labyrinth of lies.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“At a moment when the CIA’s travails are evoking nostalgia for a golden age when it supposedly operated effectively, McCarry offers a useful reminder that such an era never existed. That alone is reason enough to welcome the return of his excellent Paul Christopher novels.” New York Times
“The best spy novelists were once spies themselves, including le Carré, Greene, McCarry and even Maugham.” New York Times Book Review
“In an arena that has become more and more distinguished, Charles McCarry remains the greatest espionage writer that America has produced. The greatest. Period.” Otto Penzler
“McCarry is an ace spy novelist.” Publishers Weekly
“[This] political thriller [is] among his best.” Library Journal
“Number one…the best espionage writer in the English language!” Best Sellers
“A complex and carefully crafted plot, with passages that make one put the book down and gasp.” Jeffrey Archer, bestselling author
