Présentation de l'éditeur


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.


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.


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

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
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
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.

The book starts with intrigue and snared me in. It didn't take long, however, to be frustrated and then ultimately hugely disappointed. Since it is called "The Director" I assumed the book would feature the newly appointed CIA director, Weber, a controversial pick who despite his goals of changing the Agency is almost immediately insecure about his role. Ho is an outsider. He also vanishes for long parts of the book and a sometimes confusing array of other characters are featured. Is is apparent from early on in the novel that one of his employees, Morris, has gone operationally and philosophically rogue, and physically vanishes from the Agency and, apparently, the face of the earth. Weber calls Morris repeatedly but no mention is ever made of Morris noticing Weber's calls amongst all o those he has received from co-workers and others who are looking for him. This is just one example of bad editing. And whie it is understandable why Weber cannot comfortably trust anyone, at least until he does his "sweat tests", there are just too many characters with confusing loyalties and seemingly overlapping duties for there plot to make any sense.
Things are sort of tied up at the end, but not really, and certainly unsatisfyingly. I cannot imagine Weber really felt that good about his accomplishment. And life will just probably go on at the Agency in this book without much change

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good book but weak climax 19 juin 2014
Par Kenneth C. Mahieu - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Mixed feelings on this book and perhaps 4 stars is too generous. What I liked: This is about hacking, and in a sense it is the new frontier for intelligence agencies. Hacking has been around since only days after the Internet was born, but now the hackers are getting better and better. The new director of the CIA has to worry about in-house cyber intrusions as well as invasions of financial institutions which could catastrophically impact global economies. So we learn a lot about the new tools, the lingo, the attacks, the talent pool, defenses, etc. An awful lot. This book is similar in some ways to the recent novel "I Am Pilgrim" in that it staggers the reader with the nightmare, "Hey, this could really happen here." And that is what sticks most with me after reading this book. What I didn't like: Perhaps there was just a bit too much about all the hacking. Towards the end I didn't want to hear anymore about how systems, programs, etc. I also didn't care much for the character of the Director. He came across to me as a bit of a bumbler, someone who was learning learning learning all the way up to the final pages. Though a very successful businessman, he doesn't strike me as someone who could succeed in a different environment than the one he is most familiar with....Is there a message here that success in government leadership positions absolutely requires tons of government experience? Perhaps.... While the Director is ultimately hailed as a hero and someone who brought a new focus to the CIA, I came away with the feeling that the organization would be back to "normal" 24 hours after he leaves. And then there's the climax. It felt to me that the author got tired of the whole thing and just wanted to end it, So he did it in a few brief pages, and not all of those were credible to me.
