Interesting book, well written, but there was nothing that made it exceptional or different from many others
"There's a new, off-the-books unit of the CIA working in Pakistan, and despite the secrecy that cloaks it, the unit's operatives are being killed off, one by one. Newly minted head of counterintelligence Sophie Marx is tasked with finding the killer (or killers) and with figuring out how the officers' identities were leaked. What she uncovers - U.S. bribery in Pakistan, highly illegal financial activities - is terrifying, and will leave you wondering how much author David Ignatius' day job as a Washington Post columnist (specialising in the Middle East and the CIA) informs his fiction."

Another plausible modern day 'Spy' story, that compares with Charles Cumming or John LeCarre.
I thought the ending was a bit of a 'damp squib', but this is nonetheless a good read.
Agents in a secret CIA division are being murdered. Mystery solved via California, DC, London & Pakistan. Rec by Washington Post.
Another excellent espionage novel from Ignatius. No writer knows the turf better than this veteran Washington Post foreign correspondent and he continues to develop as a novelist. Vivid characters and a terrific story.
A cracking good tale of espionage around the world where sometimes your enemy is a truer friend than your colleague.
Wow! Great book. Well written with an excellent plot. The money terms were understandable in this book and did not take away from story. Lots of action.
This was a mildly entertaining international espionage novel. A little too simplistic in it's character development and plot line. He's no John LeCarre
