THE LAST SUPPER - Charles McCarry
This is the absolute equal of anything Le Carre has written in the Karla trilogy. It gives the back history of Paul Christopher's family and early life leading up to the beginning of WWII.
The betrayal in this novel is absolute and destroys entire families over generations.
The tracking down and unmasking of the traitor lasts until the end and is as intricate and taxing as anything Smiley did . Fantastic.
The cover blurb from P J O'Rourke "The classic thriller from the absolute best thriller writer alive" is not hyperbole.
