If ever there were an unforgetable and unforgetting group of players on the world scene Paul Christphor and his friends are them. Rarely have I read such an engaging and believable hero. Or anti hero as Paul and Hurbert Christphor. Nothing glitzy or slick about these stories. Glacier logic, an amazing breadth of plot. I have read 6 of these novels and the stories are so seamlessly woven so far reaching as to seem one story. One could only wish they would never end. The plots and characters begin in pre war Germany and continue past the Viet Nam era including the beautiful etheral spector of Lori, Hubbards wife, Pauls, mother, captured by the Nazi, Dandy, in 1939 and finally re discovered in China some 30 years later. All completely logical, liniar and engaging. Paul Christphor's faith in her survival never falters and is ultimately rewarded. Although in a typical Mc Carry fashion. But there is an even bigger hook to these novels. They have the ring of absolute truth. There are no dramatic moments of gun play and derring do, 'well some but rather restrained' Nothing ultra human, just human and focused to the highest and sometimes the lowest that humans can be. I get the sense that in the gritty world of secrets and war and half truths to protect the greater truths, there is ultimately no truth, no clear answers only men who believe in country and the protection of an ideological stance, and above all themselves and the Outfit they serve. For the serious and thinking reader there are very few writers who satisfy as well.
