Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

McCarry's first book The Miernik Dossier, originally published in 1973, is a compelling and distinctive thriller in which a small group of international agents embark on a car trip in a Cadillac, from Switzerland to the Sudan. Among them are Paul Christopher, an American under deep cover; Kalash al Khatar, the seven foot tall Muslim prince; Ilona Bently, the beautiful half-English, half-Hungarian girlfriend of the British national Nigel Collins; and Tadeusz Miernik, the shy and bumbling Polish scientist who might be the leader of a terror force that could set the Cold War aflame. Related as a collection of dossier notes written by the five characters, the novel reveals a complicated web in which each spins his or her own deception: each is a spider, and each is a spy...

Synopsis:

Paul Christopher was a cool, urbane American mixed up with a comical Polish exile, a beautiful Hungarian seductress, and an African prince with a lust for women and power. It was up to Christopher to discover who was who in this sticky international mess.

Synopsis:

A compelling and distinctive thriller, this was the first novel by celebrated writer McCarry and the introduction to his eminent agent, Paul Christopher. Finally back in paperback, readers can meet Christopher again--or for the first time.
