Charles McCarry has been called the best American espionage writer who ever lived. Now, with the re-release of his classic Paul Christopher series, comes The Last Supper, a tour de force that traces the evolution of the OSS and the CIA from the aftermath of World War I through World War II, Vietnam, and the Cold War.

To Paul Christopher, the world of espionage had become a region of the mad, in which men and women lived without conviction and were compelled by a craving for conspiracy. But now, he has to find the “mole” in the Outfit and demand justice from enemies, past and present. As he follows the twisting path of this secret American intelligence group, he discovers a trail of betrayal and violence that leads backward to the horrors of the Nazi era and plunges forward beyond the Vietnam War’s labyrinth of lies.

Quotes & Awards

  • “At a moment when the CIA’s travails are evoking nostalgia for a golden age when it supposedly operated effectively, McCarry offers a useful reminder that such an era never existed. That alone is reason enough to welcome the return of his excellent Paul Christopher novels.”

    New York Times

  • “The best spy novelists were once spies themselves, including le Carré, Greene, McCarry and even Maugham.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “In an arena that has become more and more distinguished, Charles McCarry remains the greatest espionage writer that America has produced. The greatest. Period.”

    Otto Penzler

  • “McCarry is an ace spy novelist.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “[This] political thriller [is] among his best.”

    Library Journal

  • “Number one…the best espionage writer in the English language!”

    Best Sellers

  • “A complex and carefully crafted plot, with passages that make one put the book down and gasp.”

    Jeffrey Archer, bestselling author

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Alex Martini | 2/4/2014

    " The Paul Christopher novels are sublime - more than just spy-genre, they are beautifully written paeans to a lost world: McCarry is a right-wing lunatic in real-life, but that should not detract from his prose - a seriously underrated American author, and in the top 20 of America's most interesting writers. "

    " Audio Book. A decent book but not exciting enough. The whole book seemed to take place in an overcast depressing day. "

    " Loved this book about the spy Paul Christopher. It deals with Paul's parents, Hubbard and Loti and their network of friends, many of whom are spies as well. Paul's life has been defined by his parents' roles in the spying game for the US. He is dragged into a plot to try to locate a mole who is betraying America to the USSR and spends 10 years as a prisoner in China before the spy is unmasked. "
