Description:

A very early espionage novel by noted author. A first edition book with no additional printings indicated on copyright page, slight wear at the corners, tightly bound, no names or other markings, remnant of a price sticker on the front pastedown. The DJ shows slight edgewear and one very small chip at the foot of the spine, at the top of the front flap in the pricing area someone has blacked out with a felt tip marker old pricing information.but it is not clipped. Still a decent copy, now protected by a removable mylar sleeve. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: 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.

From the Publisher: The dazzling first novel--called a "fast-moving tale of Byzantine intrigue" by The New York Times--by master Charles McCarry, author of Old Boys.

"The author's first novel and first appearance of the principal character in most of his later books, Paul Christopher. In The Miernik Doisser, Christopher investigates a possible Soviet spy in Geneva. The narrative, purely experimental at the time it was written, is comprised of a collection of 89 numbered extracts from intelligence reports made by field agents (from various countries), as well as memos, wire-taps and diaries revolving around a somewhat bumbling Polish exile who might be a double or even triple agent.but then again who might not." "20th Century Crime and Mystery Writer says The Miernik Dossier is something of a masterpiece, a novel of espionage that succeeds at every ambitious level the author attempts and reverberates with possibility.".
