On a rainy night in Paris, Paul Christopher's lover Molly Benson falls victim to a vehicular homicide minutes before Christopher boards a jet bound for Vietnam. To explain this seemingly senseless murder, The Last Supper takes its readers back not only to the earliest days of Christopher's life, but also to the origins of the CIA in the clandestine operations of the OSS during World War II. Moving seamlessly from tales of refugee smuggling in Nazi Germany, to OSS-coordinated guerilla warfare against the Japanese in Burma, to the confused violence of the Vietnam War, McCarry creates an intimate history of the shadow-world of deceit and betrayal that penetrates the psyches of the men and women who live within it.
Perhaps the most richly complex of McCarry's renowned Paul Christopher novels, The Last Supper is an epic recreation of the history of an organization ensnared by a culture of conspiracy, deceit, and senseless violence.About the Author:
Charles McCarry is the author, most recently, of Christopher’s Ghosts, and has written ten acclaimed novels featuring Paul Christopher and his family (all available from Overlook). During the Cold War, he was an intelligence officer operating under deep cover in Europe, Africa, and Asia.
