The Tears of Autumn

Spun with unsettling plausibility from the events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and featuring secret agent Paul Christopher, "The Tears of Autumn" was a major bestseller upon its publication in 1975, and this riveting novel of espionage and foreign affairs remains just as gripping today. Christopher, at the height of his powers, believes he knows who arranged the assassination, and why. His theory is so destructive to the legend of the dead president, and so dangerous to the survival of foreign policy, that he is ordered to halt his investigation. But he is a man who lives by, and for, the truth - and his internal compunctions force him to the heart of the matter. After resigning from the Agency, he embarks on a tour of investigation that takes him from Paris to Rome, Zurich, the Congo and Saigon. Threatened 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.

'There is no better American spy novelist. It's like the best parts of ten John le Carre novels all put together ' - Time. 'Charles McCarry's masterpiece... would be intriguing even if told in pedestrian prose, but the grace of its writing gives it a special dimension... beautifully written, its conspiracy theory still intrigues and it most assuredly is a classic' - Washington Post. 'The best writer of intelligence and political novels in the world' - Boston Globe. 'Cool, intelligent - superbly readable - rich entertainment' - Sunday Times. 'Ranks up there with Le Carre in a select class of two' - Daily Mail.
