Présentation de l'éditeur

A MAN WITH SOMETHING TO CHANGE.

Graham Weber, the new director of the CIA, is tasked with revolutionising an agency in crisis. Never intimidated by a challenge, Weber intends to do just that.

A HACKER WITH SOMETHING TO EXPOSE.

Weber's task greatens when a young computer genius approaches the CIA with proof their systems have been compromised. There is a breach. There is a mole.

A WOMAN WITH SOMETHING TO PROVE.

The agent who takes this walk-in is K. J. Sandoval - a frustrated yet ambitious base chief desperate to prove her worth to the agency and its new director.

Weber must move quickly. And he must choose his allies carefully, if he is to succeed in identifying an enemy that is inside the gates, and out to destroy him.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Negative reviews off base 31 mai 2014
Par Travis - Publié sur Amazon.com

Kudos to Ignatius for keeping up with the times. Those who gave a poor review may have been expecting an old-school spy thriller and they are correct, this is not one of those. But it a respectable piece of work that is a sign of the times and recommended to anyone who can comprehend the severity and complexity of the technical world. Personally, I couldn't put it down and had no desire whatsoever to put it down halfway through. Nor was I reading out of obligation of getting a free copy--paid for with pre-order and worth every penny. Thanks tut o Amazon for early delivery!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 CIA hacked and invaded 27 mai 2014
Par plane - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The author comes out with one of the best conspiracy novels published in a long time. His portraits of the characters are superb, and the best and the worst are very well delineated. Graham Weber, a former private business manager is appointed Director of the CIA with the mission of turning it around and making it more efficient. One week after he takes over the agency a young man walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and announces that the CIA has been hacked and hands a list of the agents found to be forwarded to Weber. Weber decides to give the problem to the director of the Internet Operations Center, James Morris, who is the acknowledged Geek of the agency. Morris turns on a hunt like no other before this and we are introduced to the Hacker world of Europe and the U.S.
The plot goes back and forth between deals and double deals and nothing is as it seems. Ignatius introduces us to the British background to the formation of the CIA and to the claim that the agency was molded after MI6 after WWII. He indicates in an afterward that this allegation was true with England holding the reins for many years.
Weber learns that he cannot trust anyone in his team, although he begins what might become a love affair with one of his department heads until the point where she seemingly betrays his trust. Ignatius does not glorify any one character but paints them as they would probably be if faced with these same problems in real life.
A must read book, and one that might be easily finished in one night once the reader gets into it.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 THRILLING AND INTELLIGENT! 29 mai 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
The Director by David Ignatius, Washington Post columnist and bestselling author of Bloodmoney, is a thriller set in the world of espionage, and stealing classified information like in the good old days is a thing of the past. No one bothers to steal anymore, not because it is not important, but simply because information can be altered and change to suit the needs of the party concerned.

In The Director, David Ignatius has shifted the frontlines of battles to the dark and sophisticated rooms of high-rise buildings as soldiers are replaced by hackers, a world where it is difficult to distinguish between two opposing sides. Graham Weber is the new CIA director. He has been saddled as new the director for about a week when a young hacker informs the bureau chief in Hamburg that the CIA has been hacked, and all information has been compromised. To establish veracity of his claim he hands over a list of agents as proof. As the agency dithered, the young hacker is found dead and Weber must rely only on trustworthy in-house team to deal with the situation.

Author David Ignatius has carried out extensive research to write this thrilling novel which employs the latest in the cyber-world. Building a world of deceit and treachery, where survival demands a code of silence, this story of modern-day espionage is an intelligent and engrossing read which will delight many readers.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 More reflections on a Wilderness of Mirrors 6 juillet 2014
Par Bruce from LA - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I enjoyed the insights into some of the hacker world activities and methods and it's growing primacy in maintaining reasonable control in nearly all areas of world economies and national security. I did not, however, find any of the characters particularly compelling nor even very interesting. Everyone seemed to have their own worldview and their own personal agendas with the possible exception of the new "Director" who is clearly out of his element in this world and quickly struggling just to survive.

My primary impression was that no one in the higher levels of Intelligence really has much grasp of reality. It's a Wilderness of Mirrors. Perhaps that is true but it does not make for a very good novel as far as I am concerned. Despite all the plot twists and turns, betrayals, new allegiances, etc. the ending reeked of a "deadline finish" to me.....something that had to be wrapped up very quickly no matter how little sense it made just to meet the publisher's deadline. At least it sure left me scratching my head over just exactly who did what and why and how in order for things to suddenly reach such a rapid and illogical conclusion.

As far a recommendation let me put it this way - it's a decent enough story for summertime leisure reading....but there are no strong characters, no compelling or clear plot lines other than a lot of ambiguously global threats and in the end you need not wonder if this is the first of a series for there is nothing and no one in this book that is worth any further exploration.

Probably David ignatius is right, and most spies will operate in cyberspace in the future. While I miss the cloak and dagger suspense of old spy novels, this is an excellent journey into a new world.
