The Miernik Dossier is the dazzling first novel, recently reissued, by master spy novelist Charles McCarry. In this riveting, imaginative tale, five international agents embark on a road trip in a Cadillac from Switzerland to the Sudan. Among them are Paul Christopher, an American operative; Kalash el Khatar, the seven-foot-tall Muslim prince; Ilona Bentley, 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 a spy. The Miernik Dossier is an absolute masterpiece.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Lou | 1/19/2011

    " I love McCarry's writing and this one does not disappoint. The road trip depicted in this book starts in Europe and end up in North Africa. Quite a strange cast of characters each spying on each other. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by David | 9/20/2010

    " First in McCarry's famous Paul Christopher series. Pretty much an outlier in the series.

    The car trip part of the plot seemed far fetched and the use of field reports, interviews, telexes, and letters to tell the story was an interesting idea but didn't always work. "

    " Recommended by Mike Stax. Told in epistolary form. Works well enough. "
