Paul Christopher is the subject of this book, but he's missing and being sought by a group of former spooks lead by his nephew Horace Hubbard, who had been disgraced from the service in an earlier book.
This McCarry novel reintroduces Lori Christopher and Zarah Christopher, and leads the Old Boys all over the world playing a deadly game of mystery and intrigue suggested by Paul Christopher before his disappearance.
McCarry really impresses me with his subplots and knowledge of falconing, Cold War politics and intelligence services and Biblical arcana. How could he compress all that knowledge into a readable espionage book? He does.
