First edition. Inked gift inscription on the front free fly leaf: "To Carolyn and Otto, / who packed the house / for me on March 4, 1988. / Affectionately, / Chas McCarry." Inscribed to Otto Penzler of The Mysterious Bookshop fame and his wife. Pages uniformly tanned else as new, unread copy in dust jacket. Paul Christopher, who has appeared in previous novels, has his life traced through the development of the secret CIA group known as "The Outfit," to early days in the struggle against the Nazis and the Japanese, to the bitterness and the moral complexities of the present day. An unusual book that encompasses the history of our time, suggesting all the while that espionage and treason are the great actions shaping international life. Powerful story. An exceptional copy! You may find one as good but none better than this copy.
