I've been a huge Charles McCarry fan since forever. Well, since I read The Tears of Autumn years ago. It's a thriller and a mystery, although the historical setting, the assassination of JFK, is hardly a mystery. Or is it? Not a conspiracy theorist myself, but I've always had a hard time believing that a down-on-his-luck loser like Lee Harvey Oswald managed to murder the President unassassisted. McCarry weaves a story that blends facts from the period with his own personal knowledge of espionage tradecraft - he was in the CIA himself - and just enough imagination to make it vastly entertaining while still completely plausible.

This isn't a shoot-'em-up spy thriller, no deeply researched high tech weaponry, no nefarious plot to take over the free world - just a damned well written novel based on one of the pivotal moments in US history from a unique perspective.
