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.

McCarry's spy novels are among the greatest I've read, up there with LeCarre, Deighton and Furst. His characterization of his protagonist, Paul Christopher, is clear and believable, and his narrative style is beautifully crisp and descriptive. This story is woven around one of the most significant events in American history, and is unforgettable.
