    There s nothing like an intelligent, well thought out spy novel with believable characters and credible situations If that s your kind of novel, KEEP LOOKING This was horrible Indigestible and inexcusable.It s inexcusable when an author has supposedly smart people do stupid things But it gets even worse here Suspicious people accept information without question Secretive people talk to other people about their secrets A hardened terrorist yields to the pressure of being bored in prison to There s nothing like an intelligent, well thought out spy novel with believable characters and credible situations If that s your kind of novel, KEEP LOOKING This was horrible Indigestible and inexcusable.It s inexcusable when an author has supposedly smart people do stupid things But it gets even worse here Suspicious people accept information without question Secretive people talk to other people about their secrets A hardened terrorist yields to the pressure of being bored in prison to and so spills all But the last straw for me was when the protagonist s estranged wife rapes him If you like an intelligent spy novel, read Alan Furst Don t waste your time or money here

    This novel is one well crafted post 9 11 spy thriller with a highly elaborate plot The story starts when CIA agent Roger Ferris is sent on a mission to flush out a terrorist known as Suleiman In order to forestall further Al Qaeda attacks he develops an intricate scheme to pit the terrorists against each other by sowing seeds of suspicion that their leaders are collaborating with the Americans Unable to succeed alone, he requires the full support of his boss Ed Hoffman and with the help of Ha This novel is one well crafted post 9 11 spy thriller with a highly elaborate plot The story starts when CIA agent Roger Ferris is sent on a mission to flush out a terrorist known as Suleiman In order to forestall further Al Qaeda attacks he develops an intricate scheme to pit the terrorists against each other by sowing seeds of suspicion that their leaders are collaborating with the Americans Unable to succeed alone, he requires the full support of his boss Ed Hoffman and with the help of Hani Salaam the head of Jordan s intelligence service Ferris sets in motion his body of lies The plot is modeled after a British plan used against the Nazis The Man Who Never Was.The novel really delivers at every level a great story line of realism and great character development The writing is done with a journalistic flavour,of an account seen though the eyes of a reporter, one with first hand experience Although it is a fictional novel, it reads like fact His exploration of the complexities of espionage combined with his portrayal of the intelligence community makes this a terrific read and a page turner It is a definite stimulation to one s own imagination

    I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book On the one hand, I enjoyed hearing about Ferris time in Jordan I felt like the best scenes were between Ferris and the Jordanian spy, Hani, and I also enjoyed the interplay between Roger and his boss Ed Hoffman These three characters were interesting and compelling to watch, although all of them were a little two diamensional.Where the book really fell down was introducing a love story between Ferris and an aid worker, Alice He seems to fall in I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book On the one hand, I enjoyed hearing about Ferris time in Jordan I felt like the best scenes were between Ferris and the Jordanian spy, Hani, and I also enjoyed the interplay between Roger and his boss Ed Hoffman These three characters were interesting and compelling to watch, although all of them were a little two diamensional.Where the book really fell down was introducing a love story between Ferris and an aid worker, Alice He seems to fall in love with her remarkably quickly, and from that moment it seems like his entire world revolves around her He is meant to be a war hardened spy, not a lovesick teenager.Overall three stars, but I could have stretched to 4 if the characterisations had been a bit better

    Well paced, but as with almost all such stories, it suffers from being a bit juvenile in its characterizations over simplifying people and their motives and a bit formulaic in its construction However, based on the reporter s background, it is definitely well researched and quite a plausible plot The technical writing and spycraft aspects of the novel are its strongest cards, much like the better Tom Clancy books pre Op Center drivel I had already seen the film before picking up the boo Well paced, but as with almost all such stories, it suffers from being a bit juvenile in its characterizations over simplifying people and their motives and a bit formulaic in its construction However, based on the reporter s background, it is definitely well researched and quite a plausible plot The technical writing and spycraft aspects of the novel are its strongest cards, much like the better Tom Clancy books pre Op Center drivel I had already seen the film before picking up the book, so I know how it goes though the film version is not quite on the same level as Spy Game , it s obviously treading very similar territory with a not too dissimilar level of competency agility in the story telling It s worth picking up there are minor plot holes, as with all such fiction, but overall it s an intelligent portrayal Reminds me quite a bit of Spy Game , which I thought was the best filmed spy tale I ve seen Very understated and, I believe, much closer to the true nature of the craft than many of theaction oriented of the genre film lit

    I liked this book a lot and there are a lot of things I liked in it above all, the story is totally gripping, I could not put the book down, the last 50 pages are breathtaking The plot is constructed as a masterpiece of espionage fiction double games which become triple, quadruple.unbelievable I also liked the overall intellectual honesty I found in the novel, the non western centric view of things in Middle East, the brutally honest portrait of the CIA for what it actually is a giganti I liked this book a lot and there are a lot of things I liked in it above all, the story is totally gripping, I could not put the book down, the last 50 pages are breathtaking The plot is constructed as a masterpiece of espionage fiction double games which become triple, quadruple.unbelievable I also liked the overall intellectual honesty I found in the novel, the non western centric view of things in Middle East, the brutally honest portrait of the CIA for what it actually is a gigantic minster of bureaucracy, filled with too many incompetent technocrats believing their own powerpoint as opposed to the way most spy novels tend to depict it, i.e the hotspot of espionage, the house of the smartest field agents of the world.This is in my view one of the top spy novels I ever read and I read a bunch of them.PS I have watched the homonymous movie by Ridely Scott not bad if you have not read the book, if not just forget it

    Not up to the usual standards of this author s work Only one character was interesting and smart and he had too small of a role While the plot could have been fairly interesting, if the characters had not continuously done stupid things to propel it along, there was entirely too much focus on the MC s romances and the female characters were pretty laughable stereotypes Listened to the audio which was read by Dick Hill who does male characters fine but his female characters and the love scenes Not up to the usual standards of this author s work Only one character was interesting and smart and he had too small of a role While the plot could have been fairly interesting, if the characters had not continuously done stupid things to propel it along, there was entirely too much focus on the MC s romances and the female characters were pretty laughable stereotypes Listened to the audio which was read by Dick Hill who does male characters fine but his female characters and the love scenes were almost cringe worthy
