It is the late 1930s, and a young Christopher bears witness to an unspeakable atrocity committed by a remorseless SS officer. When the action moves forward to the height of the Cold War, the SS man emerges out of the ruins of post-war Germany to destroy the last living witness to his crime. It's a case of tiger chasing tiger as Christopher is pursued by the only man who can match his craft or his instincts. With ferocious suspense and masterful pacing, Charles McCarry delivers a haunting parable of a man confronted with the ghosts of an entire generation's brutal history.

Reviews

'Come this time next year, I expect Christopher's Ghosts to be a strong contender for the MWA's Best Novel award. If it isn't, someone won't be thinking clearly. And it won't be me' -- Michael Allen, www.grumpyoldman.com. 'You don't need to be familiar with the characters to read this beautifully written book' -- Literary Review. 'Excruciatingly tense ... a pure historical thriller ... catapults [McCarry] into the company of John Le Carre, Eric Ambler, Graham Greene and Alan Furst, but his stylish voice and historic scope make him unique ' -- Los Angeles Times. 'Superb ... McCarry has no peer when painting a nuanced and contemplative portrait of American Cold War espionage' -- Washington Post.
