Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is the late 1930s, and a young Christopher bears witness to an unspeakable atrocity committed by a remorseless SS officer. When the action moves forward to the height of the Cold War, the SS man emerges out of the ruins of post-war Germany to destroy the last living witness to his crime. It's a case of tiger chasing tiger as Christopher is pursued by the only man who can match his craft or his instincts.


With ferocious suspense and masterful pacing, Charles McCarry delivers a haunting parable of a man confronted with the ghosts of an entire generation's brutal history.

Larry Robinson, January 6, 2010 (view all comments by Larry Robinson)
The final book in the Paul Christopher series fills in some back story of younger Paul's life in WWII Germany. McCarry does an excellent job of evoking the time and the location in all of his Paul Christopher books. If you are looking for a good historical fiction series that takes place during WWII, this series is great. The writing is well above average for the genre.
