Paul Christopher is a CIA man who was raised around dark secrets. His parents smuggled Jews out of Germany via boat to Denmark during World War II when he was just a child. As a teenager he remembers he and his American father being removed from Germany while his German mother was held behind. This separation and the need to find her prompted Paul's father to join the CIA. Following in his father's footsteps after his murder, Paul also joins the "The Outfit." The Last Supper spans all of the major conflicts between World War I and the Vietnam War. Stay on your toes because this is fast paced and involves many different characters who may or may not be spies. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451128575, Mass Market Paperback)

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.

Paul Christopher has his life traced through the development of the secret CIA group known as "The Outfit," to early days in the struggle against the Nazis and the Japanese, to the bitterness and the moral complexities of the present day. An unusual book that encompasses the history of our time, suggesting all the while that espionage and treason are the great actions shaping international life. Powerful story.… (more)
