'The Mulberry Bush’ Is Enriched By Charles McCarry’s Real-Life Spycraft
Charles McCarry's The Tears of Autumn is one of the finest spy thrillers I've read, and Ive been reading spy thrillers since I was a young teenager in the mid 1960s.
This suspenseful and intelligent thriller and McCarry's other fine thrillers are so good that many reviewers have called him the "American John le Carre."
So I'm interested in reading former CIA officer Charles McCarry's latest thriller, The Mulberry Bush.
Kevin Canfield reviewed the new thriller for the Washington Post.
Charles McCarry has been writing spy novels since the 1970s, and like just a few of his peers, he has made a seamless transition from Cold War thrillers to present-day plots featuring technophile terrorists. But as he demonstrates in his new book, McCarry, himself an ex-CIA operative, hasn’t forgotten the folklore of 20th-century espionage.
