"A dynamic thriller with the coolest, smartest journalist that fiction ever produced." —Ben Bradlee, Washington Post
When rising-star reporter Eric Truell accepts information from a maverick CIA agent, he becomes enmeshed in an international trade war in which even his own newspaper may be an unsuspecting participant. When Eric's sources tell him there is a spy inside the newsroom, he is tempted to cross a dangerous professional line and risk his career—possibly even his life—to find the truth.

A firing offense
I had a hard time putting this book down. Ignatius does a wonderful job of integrating the moral issues of one's professional life while following the rules. The twists and turns in this story are so compelling. It makes one wonder about the workings of all the organizations he describes. In the end one can conclude that those who run these countries and it's' organizations are all capable of human error or worse. Of course we all like the individual who steps up to the plate and does the "right" thing. I loved this book.
