The Miernik Dossier is the dazzling first novel, newly 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.

Professional reviews

"Numerous intelligence reports, memos, dossier notes, and wire-tapped conversations created by a variety of government agents develop the plotline of this story of spy networks and double agents. It all leads to a remarkable auto trip between Switzerland and the Sudan with an American operative, a Muslim prince, a diabolical but beautiful woman, a British national, and a Polish terrorist. The narration is authentic, professional, and dramatic, but the continual switching between characters and the use of different narrators to recount excerpts from copious documents can be distracting and confusing. Listeners must remain focused so as not to miss scene and character changes. B.J.P. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
