Reviews

[A] frighteningly convincing spy thriller.
Ignatius has given readers another compelling and enlightening look at what might happen next month. Must-read twenty-first-century espionage fiction.
A lively read.
Ignatius uses all his Washington insider experience to give his story its sharp authenticity.
If you think cybercrime and potential worldwide banking meltdown is a fiction, read this sensational thriller and reconsider any investing strategy you might have.--Bob Woodward
An entertaining, high-tech ride, full of theme park pyrotechnics and more substantial pleasures. As in his previous thrillers, Mr. Ignatius...injects the plot with his wide-ranging knowledge of history, geopolitics and national security issues, while giving the reader an intimate sense of the tradecraft employed by his characters.--Michiko Kakutani
David Ignatius's novels have always been a clef in the best sense: closely connected to, and very revealing and insightful about, the trends and tensions in the news... [A] page-turning read.--James Fallows
One of his best... Ignatius has a gift for portraying the soldiers of the CIA bureaucracy in all their ambition, heroism and pettiness, and what he suggests about the nation's cybersecurity will keep you up at night.--Mary Ann Gwinn
As a writer, Ignatius doesn't know how to tell a bad story. His unparalleled understanding of the intelligence world propels his work so far above others who dabble in the field that there's little comparison.
