Miernik Dossier

McCarry’s first book, The Miernik Dossier, originally published in 1973, is a riveting and imaginative tale in which a small group of international agents embark on a car trip in a Cadillac, from Switzerland to the Sudan.

“Charles McCarry is the best modern writer on the subject of intrigue,” wrote P.J. O'Rourke, and Time magazine has declared that “there is no better American spy novelist.” Related as a collection of dossier notes written by the five characters, The Miernik Dossier reveals a complicated web in which each spins his or her own deception: each is a spider, and each is a spy. The Miernik Dossier is a thoroughgoing masterpiece.
