Product description

Cool, urbane Paul Christopher is the perfect American agent, currently working in deep cover in the twilight world of international intrigue. But now even he cannot tell good from bad in a maze of double- and triple-cross. As a group of international agents embark on a trip in a Cadillac from Switzerland to the Sudan, Christopher knows that he has to find which one is about to unleash bloody terrorism - and God help everyone if he makes a mistake. Originally published in 1973, this compelling and distinctive thriller was the debut of the widely celebrated Charles McCarry and is the first book to introduce readers to Paul Christopher. Finally back in paperback, "The Miernik Dossier" will introduce a new generation of readers to the work of one of the great spy novelists.

Review quote

'Arguably the finest modern American spy story' - New York Times. 'Charles McCarry is the best modern writer on the subject of intrigue - by the breadth of Alan Furst, by the fathom of Eric Ambler, by any measure' - P.J. O'Rourke. 'Intelligent and enthralling... superbly constructed... wholly convincing' - Eric Ambler. 'Absorbing, intelligent... True entertainment' - New Yorker. 'McCarry's thrillers really thrill, his political insight is praised by senior politicians and his erudition, experience and good writing turn spy stories into literature. McCarry and his dynamic alter-egos wipe the floor with the opposition' - Telegraph.
