I am going to give this book 5 stars; whether it deserves it is another story. How can you write a book about the secret services? The clue is in the word secret! Somewhere in the book it even says that the security services do not bother to take legal action against people who write books about their activities because to do so only gives their written words legitimacy. So is this a work of fact or fiction? It certainly contains a lot of great stories that I enjoyed immensely, it also provides a good insight to anyone who wants to know why the middle east is so full of violence. Definitely read it if you are into great stories about the work of the secret services, the truth? I suspect that we cannot handle the truth!
