Second Sight is seventh in the series that follows the legendary spy Paul Christopher-a man ensnared by a line of work that never failed to exert its insidious influence outside professional boundaries. Now retired and living the quiet life as a loving husband in Washington, D.C., Christopher has survived battlefields of World War II, undercover Cold War killing grounds, and imprisonment in China. But now, throughout the Arab world, U.S. agents are being kidnapped and brain- drained by an unidentified enemy armed with a diabolical new drug. Christopher's old friend and superior in "the Outfit" calls with a command he feels he must obey. But what begins for Christopher as a global manhunt swiftly turns into something far closer to home. For the key to the danger he must defuse is a secret buried deep in his own perilous past.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Second Sight is a deliciously subtle and fulfilling novel, the end of a great river of loves. This is the seventh and last novel of a unity which contained more truth and emotion that any other 'spy novel' of that large conspiratorial genre." -Richard Condon

Reading these McCarry novels in the order they have been re-released by Overlook has been fun, as the knowledge you have of the character's development and future somehow adds to the involvement. For all that, I found this one less satisfactory than some others: David Patchen, a main character here, doesn't come alive as much as I would have liked, but maybe that's the point too!
