Description

“You emerge from its pages as if from a top-level security briefing—confident that you have been let in on the deepest secrets.”—Washington Post
Someone in Pakistan is killing the members of a new CIA unit trying to buy peace with America’s enemies. It falls to Sophie Marx, a young officer with a big chip on her shoulder, to figure out who’s doing the killing and why. Unfortunately for Sophie, nothing is quite what it seems. This is a theater of violence and revenge, in which the last act is one that Sophie could not have imagined.

Publishers Weekly Review

Apr 04, 2011 – Foreign intrigue specialist Ignatius (The Increment) continues his fictional trek through terrorist hot spots with this timely thriller about the CIA's bungling attempts to influence Pakistan's shaky, insecure leadership. Sophie Marx, an agent hungry to return to the field after a high-level but boring desk job, works for a new intelligence unit disguised as a Los Angeles record company, Hit Parade, whose undercover focus is to control Pakistani organized terrorist cells through bribery. It's not working. Not only are the terrorist attacks continuing but CIA agents delivering the bribes are being murdered. To make matters worse, Hit Parade's secret funding source—a highly illegal strategy to skim money from the world's financial markets—is rapidly becoming public knowledge. Ignatius, a Washington Post columnist, is especially good at capturing the work environment at the CIA, where petty bickering, one-upmanship, and moral lapses often get in the way of sound policy.

Customer Reviews

Nice little page turner

A pretty good thriller for some light reading. Kept the interest going pretty well, although it feels like it's written so that it can be turned into a movie. Recommended in between more serious reading.

Intellectually stimulating page-turner

A fast enjoyable read for those interested in US foreign policy or who simply like a good spy novel.

Bloodmoney

A light read. Not as gripping or thoughtful as The Increment.
