5.0 out of 5 stars CIA operatives in the Middle East 26 Feb. 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I started with the last book of David Ignatius 'Body of lies' and enjoyed it so much I decided to buy his first book 'Agents of Innocence', what a treat this turned out to be. Far better than subsequent books (yes, I was smitten and bought other works). Agents of Innocence is far superior, a complex plot, a wide range of characters and double dealing all the way with one party or another. The book is excellent with fast action and is a compulsive page turner
What I most admired was the understanding Ignatius has of the Arab culture and ways of thinking, I was particularly impressed as I have spent time in various Middle East countries and Ignatius captures so eloquently the essence of life in the Lebanon and Jordan etc.
The story centres on a CIA agent Tom Rogers and his liasons with various other operatives on all sides of the political cauldron that makes up politics in this part of the world. In particular he has a particular involvement with Jamal Ramlawi who manages and plays a very scarey lifestyle as a PLO operative and playboy.
This book is a real page turner and does not disappoint in any way. If you are a lover of the spy/thriller genre of books then this is a very good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sophisticated, realistic thriller 7 July 2007
I think this is such a fine espionage novel, based around real events.
The professional reviews are many and full of praise. Some books have a smell and texture. This is one. i've not been to Beirut, but this book makes you feel you are there. It is not an action thriller. It seems like an authentic account of how to run an agent.

The author's latest book 'Body of Lies' is just as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 12 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you like spy stories this is excellent, although not your James Bond type of novel. Character are well formulated and the story line is easy to follow, could not put it down, excellent read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow to get going 3 Oct. 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this on the strength of customer reviews and having watched the film 'Body of Lies'. Initially I thought I'd made a mistake. The first thirty or so pages failed to draw me in, and I contemplated putting it away at that point. I'm more used to the Tom Clancy habit of getting the reader hooked in the prologue, but I continued reading and, to my pleasure, found that it got better and better and better. The characters are so well described that I cannot see Russell Crowe as Hoffman now, as in the BofL film, they appear so different. Very descriptive and a great plot tied into real events. Buy it and stick with it and enjoy.
