What I’m reading.

Tears of Autumn by Charles McCarry is a spy novel that manages to also be a historical thriller.   The hero of this story is an experienced U. S. undercover agent named Paul Christopher who finds himself caught up in the circumstances surrounding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.   The story follows his attempts to convince his superiors of his take on the situation leading up to the assassination and obtain the evidence to support his ideas.  It is an exciting, quick paced and believable read.  The book is well written, well researched, and in the end may have you second guessing your personal beliefs regarding the Kennedy assassination.

This is one of several Paul Christopher books by the author but the first that I have read.  The book was good enough that, even though I am not normally a spy novel devote, I would be tempted to read another in the series.
