Synopsis

“You emerge from its pages as if from a top-level security briefing—confident that you have been let in on the deepest secrets.”—Washington Post


Someone in Pakistan is killing the members of a new CIA unit trying to buy peace with America’s enemies. It falls to Sophie Marx, a young officer with a big chip on her shoulder, to figure out who’s doing the killing and why. Unfortunately for Sophie, nothing is quite what it seems. This is a theater of violence and revenge, in which the last act is one that Sophie could not have imagined.

Ignatius’ pacing is superb. He regulates the pace of the unfolding plot to give us time to savor it rather than rush us along.

...a breathtaking, heady roller-coaster ride up and down the corridors of power from Washington to London to Pakistan, the novel’s main focus.

The novel crashes towards its bloody denouement, with a conclusion so ludicrous that even fantasy novel writers would wrinkle their noses in distaste.
