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.

D. Ignatius takes us into a new world pretty terrifying: hackers that are capable of getting into the most protected systems, and able to change the world. Very well written, keeps you awake at night to finish the book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 In a Word: Brilliant! 27 juin 2014
Par Harold Billings - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
For several years Ignatius has been the best author of contemporary espionage novels. This one requires close reading because of the detail involved in a novel involving digital conspiracy and treason, and different levels of national values by the principals. Thus, it may be slower reading than most thriller readers are looking for, but this is a complex novel, with carefully drawn characters, and details that produce a compelling read. This is a brilliant display of the ability of Ignatius to gather a huge amount of digital information, the complexities of national spycraft, a tight photograph of the most important characters and their interplay on an international stage. and pull all the strands together to make this an important novel as well as a fascinating one. After reading this, you will have a rather scary understanding of the politics and activities that drive our FBI, CIA, and national security apparatus. A great read and an important one. Ignatius is a superb writer. story teller, and valuable thinker. Good grief, he is good!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 with an inside track on national security matters - his thinly disguised novel about inserting the Stuxnet virus into Iran's nuc 8 mars 2015
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Ignatius is an experienced Washington journalist, with an inside track on national security matters - his thinly disguised novel about inserting the Stuxnet virus into Iran's nuclear establishment has an amazing level of inside detail. Here again, its on display - he really does know what you see looking out the window of the CIA Director's office.
Less believable is the main character, a Silicon Valley Billionaire who has to have computer hacking explained to him at almost every turn. Thinner still is the idea a "rogue" CIA agent can spent over $18 million in agency money in one week (approved by accounting no less) and nobody notices, remarks on it, or wonders, "gee where did all that go..."
This believability is the problem with the set up too - a Friday walk-in hacker in Hamburg offers to spill the beans to the CIA on some global conspiracy, but is shown the door by a not too successful mid-level pencil pusher. In theory this guy will return Monday with all the dope. Right
Amazingly the guy who goes off to interview him at his Monday return, gee he gets the blame for the predictable end, and maybe should get fired too...for??? Someone else's screw-up? And this is the central premise of the book???
Well after that at least it gets going - and it is nice to know that while the CIA guy gets an Escalade, his boss gets a Navigator - status doth prevail. Its also nice to know everyone here is a weasel, ready to dump anything for their "job." I mean, can a civil service income mean that much---to a Silicon Valley billionaire -- to an MIT PhD in charge of the CIA hacking division--to "guards" who kidnap and imprison the CIA guy, incommunicado, for a WEEK. He must not get many calls he needs to return.
Then of course there is the matter of the CIA being a plot by the English to control the universe, and over the objections of the US, runs its banks as well through the ultra-obscure Bank for international Settlements in Basel--oooh it had Nazi gold, once, 60 years ago, and ooohhh, its super secret, although housed in a 14 story ziggurat across the street from the Hilton. Plus there is a super high level traitor in the Gov who is in league with the Russians - but NOBODY KNOWS!!!
There is a point where you have a simple little cupcake, frost it, cover it with sprinkles, and then add a creme center, and a cherry on top, and dust it with coconut flakes, throw on some gold foil, and...too much for a poor cupcake to handle.
One of these plot lines would have made an entertaining novel, many people before have made a meal out of unseen conniving at the BIS, it used to be a specialty of Paul Erdman, for example.
Plus we're skipping the weird sexual tweaks several minor characters indulge, and gosh, even more insider secret poop from John Foster Dulles' SISTER, and commentary on three or four or more Phillip Glass operas.
Save this for the one cent sale, and read it on a long plane ride.

I don't know how the author has escaped my attention until now, but credit goes to secretary of Justice Jeff Sessions who mentioned the author as one of his favorites during testimony on Capitol Hill. Even if you are not techno-savvy, you have to appreciate the research that went into this novel and the pace of suspense that drives the reader forward. Like "The Company" this is a signal work of truth and fiction, well researched and expertly executed. Simply put, I love this book, and look forward to reading more by this talented author.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A book worth reading 19 juillet 2017

This book gives an introduction to the world of cyber security world, like ‘zero day exploits’, ‘Defcon One’. David Ignatius is known as the ‘mouthpiece of CIA’, he has a meticulous understanding of the functioning of CIA. The issues mentioned in the book are now on the headlines of newspaper. A book worth reading! He even consulted the owner of Washington Post and founder of Amazon of Jeff Bezos.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good idea, could've been a good story. poor characters 14 janvier 2015
Par Banquero - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
After the unfortunate passing of my 2 favorite spy thriller writers (Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn), I stumbled upon this book. I found the book particularly intriguing since I have an interest in coding and the tech world as a hobby, and I thought that this is where the author would let me down. Surprisingly Ignatius was well researched and explained many details in the world of hacking. The book started off intriguing, halfway through the plot seemed to drag, the ending was fast paced and exciting, and the ultimate finale was lackluster.

The biggest problem I have is the characters. The primary antagonist's scheme didn't seem to make much sense. Ignatius starts off by building the characters ideology on internet privacy and freedom, yet his plan was to hack the BIS? How does hacking the bank further his aims? I get that characters don't have to be logical especially when they are persuaded by attractive women, but that poses its own problem. The plan was more Ramona Kyle's than his own, and with someone with her intelligence you'd think she'd have a more rational plan. The relationship between the two was poorly developed, and would have made more sense as a romantic attachment rather than a platonic friendship. Ramona seems to disappear from the story altogether about halfway through, just to reappear in the final pages as if the author forgot she was a loose end still out there. Beasley is written as an incredibly stereotypical black man that doesn't fit at all with someone who went to prep school and rose to become head of a directorate at the CIA.

***Mild Spoiler Alert*** you might want to skip the next paragraph
And then there was the ending. Leading up to the end was a great page turner. The pace and the action really picks up. But when the story comes to a conclusion, most of the antagonists get away, and a new director of the CIA is named. The end. Its abrupt, rushed, and unsatisfying. Its almost as if someone told David Ignatius that a deadline is coming "wrap it up".
***END OF SPOILERS***

In the end it was a good read but not great. 3.5 stars.
