The Miernik Dossier is the dazzling first novel, newly reissued, by master spy novelist Charles McCarry. In this riveting, imaginative tale, five international agents embark on a car trip in a Cadillac, traveling from Switzerland to the Sudan. Among them are Paul Christopher, an American operative; Kalash el Khatar, the seven-foot-tall Muslim prince; Ilona Bentley, the beautiful half-English, half-Hungarian girlfriend of the British national, Nigel Collins; and Tadeusz Miernik, the shy and bumbling Polish scientist who might be the leader of a terror force that could set the Cold War aflame. Related as a collection of dossier notes written by the five characters, the novel reveals a complicated web in which each spins his or own deception: each is a spider, and each is a spy.More

A thrilling journal
Yes, this is sort of a book that the end doesn’t matter, it’s the journey (no pun intended) that counts.
Definitely Miernik, his add demeanor had kind of…. a je ne sais quoi about him.
I loved this 4 narrators combination, it felt like a radio performance of years gone by.
Yes, definitely yes.
It is the first time I have listened to book in a journal style comprised of reports & debriefings. I was expecting it to be a very long 10 hours.To my surprise, I couldn’t put it down, at times I sat in the car long after my arrival to hear a few more minutes of this fascinating account of those add friends in their strange journey. McCarry weaves this espionage plot in an ingenious way; he has this “picturesque” way to describe the players and events. The narrators, 4 in total, did an excellent job “acting” the parts of each of the characters and reading the dossier in a dry non involved manner.
I would strongly recommend listening to this book
