On a rainy night in Paris, Paul Christopher's lover Molly Benson falls victim to a vehicular homicide minutes after Christopher boards a jet bound for Vietnam. To explain this senseless murder, "The Last Supper" takes its readers back not only to the earliest days of Christopher's life, but also to the origins of the CIA in the clandestine operations of the OSS during World War II. Moving seamlessly from tales of refugee smuggling in Nazi Germany to OSS-coordinated guerrilla warfare against the Japanese in Burma to the confused violence of the Vietnam War, McCarry creates an intimate history of the shadow-world of deceit and betrayal that penetrates the psyches of the men and women who live within it. Perhaps the most richly complex of McCarry's renowned Paul Christopher novels, "The Last Supper" is an epic recreation of the history of an organization ensnared by a culture of conspiracy, deceit and senseless violence.
