In a rose garden in Buenos Aires, an unnamed American spy meets the beautiful daughter of a famous Argentinean revolutionary. He becomes infatuated, and so does she. But he is no ordinary spy he is an off-the-books lone wolf who spent his first five years working for Headquarters” hunting terrorists in the Middle East. Unbeknownst to his lenient handlers, he is loyal to a hidden agenda: to avenge his father, who was laughed out of Headquarters many years before. In the sultry young Argentinean, the spy thinks he has found an ally. Like his father, her parents also met a terrible fate. But as his path becomes further entwined with hers, the spy finds himself caught in a perilous web of passions, affiliations, and lies that spans three continents and stretches back to the Cold War.

A potent and seductive novel, The Mulberry Bush explores what happens when the most powerful political motivator is revenge.

Review:

A Guardian best crime/thriller book of the year
A Financial Times best crime book of the year
A Publishers Weekly Best Mystery/Thriller of the Year

Blending old-time yarns with a contemporary saga of payback and political intrigue . . . McCarry merges time-honored tradecraft with the technology of the day . . . [His] real-life cloak-and-dagger work is long past. But he’s clearly banked plenty of know-how from those days, and he continues to parcel it out in entertaining spy novels like this one.” Washington Post

Charles McCarry is criminally underrated: The former CIA operative has been writing brilliant thrillers under the radar for decades the latest being The Mulberry Bush . . . McCarry’s twisty plot doubles back on itself multiple times, keeping us off-kilter to the last moment.” Seattle Times

America’s finest spy writer, Charles McCarry, proves impressively up-to-date with the methods and tensions of international espionage in The Mulberry Bush.” Guardian (UK), best crime and thriller books of 2015”

Is there a thriller writer alive today who both worked for the CIA and wrote speeches for Eisenhower? Yes, there is and McCarry, after his spectacular early career, has achieved remarkable success as a novelist. In his latest book, a young spy infiltrates the CIA to avenge the death of his father.” Financial Times, The FT’s best books of 2015”

This exceptional spy thriller, from the exceptionally talented McCarry, starts slowly and builds to an incredible ending . . . A worldwide cat-and-mouse game. Grade: A” Cleveland Plain Dealer

[An] exceptional spy novel . . . McCarry spins his riveting story in unexpected ways; the writing is always subdued but brilliant, leading unsuspecting readers to collide straight into the unforgiving wall of a stunning ending.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Treat the mystery lover on your list to this thrilling Buenos Aires-based spy tale from The Shanghai Factor author Charles McCarry.” Parade

Veteran spy thriller novelist and former CIA covert operative Charles McCarry follows the body-strewn, undercover trail of a hot-shot agent determined to avenge his father . . . A little Ian Fleming, a little Charles Cumming, a little Barry Eisler McCarry is in fine company.” Shelf Awareness

Like Shakespeare’s Prince Hamlet, the protagonist in this new novel from McCarry is a young man set on avenging the grievous wrong done to his deceased father . . . Just as Hamlet ends with an intricately choreographed scene of violent death, this novel concludes in a crescendo of lethal treachery, but not before McCarry, who has mined the rich vein of spycraft for decades, dazzles us with smart dialog, fascinating characters, and local exotica of wonderful variety and authenticity.” Library Journal

McCarry is a well regarded espionage novelist . . . As one frequently discovers in the world of espionage very little is as it appears and The Mulberry Bush’s protagonist . . . must do battle with his own employers. Needless to say, McCarry knows how the game is played and tells it well.” Our Man in Boston

Classic noir themes of trust, motive, and tarnished ideals spin through this mordant, cerebral thriller about an agent on a two-tiered mission. Veteran thriller author and former CIA op McCarry opens this latest with a cracking good setup.” Kirkus Reviews

McCarry is one of the finest spy novelists in the world, with 13 masterful novels to prove it . . . Serpentine and stylish, McCarry has the late Eric Ambler’s elegant sureness of touch.” Daily Mail (UK)

A slow, cerebral thriller than nonetheless offers a persuasive account of the realities of the espionage life.” Mail on Sunday (UK), Thriller of the Week”

Praise for Charles McCarry:

"Charles McCarry is perhaps the best ever." Lee Child, bestselling author of the Jack Reacher series, on The Shanghai Factor

"Recognized as a spy novelist of uncommon gifts." Washington Post, on The Old Boys
