Patrick Anderson
approached this handsome new edition of Charles McCarry's masterpiece, The Tears of Autumn, with trepidation. The novel was first published in 1974, and it has been more than 20 years since I last read it. I had only a hazy memory that (1) it was beautifully written, (2) it offered a plausible theory of the Kennedy assassination and (3) it was a classic. My concern was that, given a new reading, the novel might not hold up, but my fear was groundless. The Tears of Autumn is beautifully written, its conspiracy theory still intrigues and it most assuredly is a classic..

Well written, engrossing thriller. Should take its' place in the pantheon of legitimate Kennedy assassination novels  along with Dellilo, Mailer and Elroy. This is not the work of the usual amateurish assassination hacks and hobbyists.
