Product Description

Since his reemergence with the publication of Old Boys, Charles McCarry has been heralded as one of the select few novelists of espionage who manage to break out of his genre to shine as a brilliant and unique novelist. Second Sight is seventh in the series that follows the legendary spy Paul Christopher a man ensnared by a line of work that never failed to exert its insidious influence outside professional boundaries.

Now retired and living the quiet life as a loving husband in Washington, D.C., Christopher has survived battlefields of World War II, undercover Cold War killing grounds, and imprisonment in China. But now, throughout the Arab world, U.S. agents are being kidnapped and brain-drained by an unidentified enemy armed with a diabolical new drug. Christopher s old friend and superior in the Outfit calls with a command he feels he must obey. But what begins for Christopher as a global manhunt swiftly turns into something far closer to home. For the key to the danger he must defuse is a secret buried deep in his own perilous past.

Praise for Second Sight
Second Sight is a deliciously subtle and fulfilling novel, the end of a great river of loves. This is the seventh and last novel of a unity which contained more truth and emotion that any other spy novel of that large conspiratorial genre. Richard Condon

Charles McCarry is the author, most recently, of the acclaimed thriller Christopher s Ghosts. He is the author of nine other critically acclaimed novels, including The Miernik Dossier, The Secret Lovers, and The Better Angels. During the Cold War, he was an intelligence officer operating under deep cover in Europe, Africa, and Asia. He lives in Massachusetts and Florida.
