A major bestseller upon its first publication in 1975, The Tears of Autumn is Charles McCarry's riveting novel of espionage and foreign affairs, spun with unsettling plausibility from the events surrounding the assassination of J.F.K.From the Inside Flap:
The Tears of Autumn is an incisive study of power and a brilliant commentary on the force of illusion, the grip of superstition, and the overwhelming strength of blood and family in the affairs of nations. It's also a superb political thriller, taut and unsentimental, whose brilliantly original and persuasive theory about who killed Kennedy will, once again, get minds racing.
