THE TEARS OF AUTUMN - Charles McCarry
This is a very good spy story, set in Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States. It was written in 1973 and is set in 1963 when President Kennedy is assassinated.
Paul Christopher, a CIA agent with cover as a journalist has reason to believe he knows who is behind the Kennedy killing and is set loose to prove it to the US Administration.
What Christopher uncovers is as good a theory, if you believe that Oswald was not alone, as I've seen anywhere and makes a lot more sense than most that are filling up the Internet.
The author,Charles McCarry is a retired CIA agent and my assumption is there is a lot of reality in the books procedural passages, this is very good not 'Smiley" but very good. The rest of the series awaits.
