YOU MUST READ THIS! Olen Steinhauer raves about classic spy novel THE MIERNIK DOSSIER on NPR’s You Must Read This series. 

"For a novel written 40 years ago, The Miernik Dossier is shockingly modern, from its experimental structure to its exploration of terrorism. Yet what’s most modern about this breathtaking novel is the way the central mystery of Miernik himself is answered, or not answered, by the final page. Much like real intelligence work, the answer depends as much on the analyst — that is, you, the reader — as it does on the facts at hand.”
