you have an undying passion for John le Carré (think: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier,
Spy), run directly to the bookstore and pick up
former CIA agent Charles McCarry's Tears of Autumn.
Originally published in the '70s and reissued in 2005, the book follows
Paul Christopher—an American spy so cool and competent he
makes James Bond look like a buffoon—through Vietnam as he
pursues an unauthorized investigation into JFK's
assassination. McCarry's writing is so vivid and lush, you don't have to
be a conspiracy theorist to appreciate all the twists and turns.
