"Cool, intelligent... superbly readable... rich entertainment' - Sunday Times 'Was le Carre really No. 1 - or is there another espionage master lurking in the shadows who might be deserving of the palm?... McCarry is the genuine article' - The New York Times 'Possibly the greatest espionage novel ever written' The New York Sun"Reseña del editor:
"The Tears of Autumn", McCarry's riveting novel of espionage and foreign affairs, was a major bestseller upon its first publication. Spun with unsettling plausibility from the events surrounding the assassination of John F Kennedy, and featuring secret agent Paul Christopher, it is a tour de force of action and enigma.Paul Christopher the legendary spy, at the height of his powers, believes he knows who arranged the assassination, and why. But his theory is so destructive of the legend of the dead president, and so dangerous to the survival of foreign policy, that Christopher is ordered to desist from further investigation. Christopher resigns from the Agency and embarks upon a tour of investigation that takes him from Paris to Rome, Zurich, the Congo and Saigon. Pursued by Kennedy's assassins and by his own government, Christopher follows the scent of his suspicion - one breath behind the truth, one step ahead of discovery and death.
