Introduction

Charles McCarry has long been heralded as one of the select espionage writers who shines as a brilliant and unique novelist in his own right. Second Sight is the seventh in the series that follows the legendary spy Paul Christopher--a man ensnared by a line of work that never fails to exert its insidious influence outside professional boundaries.

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 him out of quiet retirement 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.

In a breathtaking, nerve-twisting plot that spins its way from pre-Nazi Germany to Vietnam, old scores have to be settled, grim reckonings must be made. And at the bottom of it all, a ravishing, strangely gifted Berber woman reappears like a half-forgotten memory, holding Paul Christopher's fate in her hands. McCarry's mastery is unmatched as he weaves past and present together in this world of secrets.
