    David Ignatius creates and builds upon an engagingly textured environment of spies and third world nuclear threat to create a realistic and fun espionage thriller While I d give Ignatius effort three starts for the intricacies of the fiction as literature, I d move it to a solid four stars for the well woven and well paced plot The story revolves around a young Iranian scientist who

    A very good spy novel which is also about real politics and the real world An Iranian nuclear scientist has decided to risk everything to alert the West that Iran is still working to build nuclear bombs He sends an email to the CIA to let them know, and the email eventually lands in the lap of Harry Pappas, a career spy, who brings it to the attention of Fox who isof a political appointee

    This is not half a good book at best it is about one third of a good book.The early chapters, portraying a clapped out CIA riven with jealousy and internal plotting, works on a sub Le Carre level A likely looking villain appears to be one Arthur Fox but he will disappear from the book without trace or explanation.The scene setting in Tehran is acceptable Trouble sets in when a British secret se

    Washington Post columnist and editor David Ignatius has covered wars, diplomacy, and the intelligence community in a long journalistic career His reporting infuses the ten suspense and espionage novels he has written over the past thirty years The Increment, published in 2009, dramatizes the hysteria in the Bush Administration about Iran s program to build nuclear weapons This engrossing and well inf

    Interesting book about spies fighting to stop their enemies from developing into nuclear power.Only downside to the book is the conclusion prime minister steps out and exposes the entire operation to the media, how they manage to thwart the efforts of their rival state by direct sabotage even names service responsible and then state that they will prevent any other nation from further interfering because e

    I read this shortly after it came out The main character reminds me of Andrew Bacevich for sad reasons that rouse my ire at Cheney et.al. But the real mystery of the novel is its publication date, May 2009, relative to the discovery of Stuxnet, June 2010, given the description of a worm that destroys Iraq s nuclear program in the book Ignatius is either Nostradamus or someone high up in the CIA or White House or

    The days when a stranger walks into CIA headquarters to offer vital information about an enemy state, are apparently over Now that person contacts the American agency by email Still, having an Iranian nuclear scientist dangle some insider info is tantalizing to veteran spooks and politicians alike Once things get moving the action shifts from Langley, Virginia to London and ultimately to Tehran Plans go awry Endings a


  8. David David says:

    John LeCarre when he is good writes gritty, depressing and heavily realistic books about espionage Robert Ludlum, on the other hand, wrote breathless thrillers with outrageous characters and plot twists Somewhere in the middle between these two extremes is David Ignatius The Increment begins when an Iranian scientist contacts the CIA through a link on its website a link that really exists That begins a series of events that

    This is a fun and thrilling novel that I came across while reading Obama s War by Bob Woodward, which I had read last year It is a spy espionage story about how the west treats intelligence information it receives about Iran It is loosely based on how the U.S government rushed to judgement in interpreting intelligence it received from the CIA and interpreted it the way politicians wanted them to mean rather that what it actually

    Basically, this is a well plotted tale about intelligence agencies American and British , their successes and failures.It is the agonizing story of success purchased at a high price Though the author in a final note asserts that it is not a realistic picture of how intelligence agencies work, he could have and did fool this reader.The book is centered on the Iranian nuclear program and though the details are obviously not factual, Igna
