The Last Supper" by Charles McCarry is excellent
The Last Supper" by Charles McCarry is excellent. It spans approximately 60 years (though the author is mystifyingly vague about exact years - instead we're treated to "eras. ) from before WWII in cheery/scary 1930s Germany to the God-awful times of McCarthyism in the US, the Cold War, The Vietnam War, and various aftermaths. In my mind, though, the main character in "The Last Supper" is Barney Wolkoweiz, whose personality, grossness and brilliance dominate the book of clever and stupid characters, all of whom are delicately drawn and are oh-so-different one from the other. In a sense, the story has heavy psychological overtones and themes. Charles McCarry continues his saga of CIA operative, Paul Christopher, with this fine novel that further develops characters and plotlines begun in his earlier work, Tears of Autumn.

Charles McCarry obituary. American writer and former undercover CIA operative best known for his spy novels. But after his fifth Christopher spy novel, The Last Supper (1983), McCarry changed tack with a generational epic, The Bride of the Wilderness (1988), which charted the history of the Christopher family in colonial and frontier days. This departure from the world of espionage may have contributed to the diminution of his loyal audience, and the mass market for epics of this kind had already been exhausted by John Jakes’s American Bicentennial series and its imitators.
