“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.

Editorial Reviews

David Remnick
“Features masterful plot mechanics, well-drawn characters, wit, and the truest depiction of an ego-mad passionate newsroom I've ever seen.”
Neil Conan
“A smart, perceptive novel about the temptations and rewards of the news industry…Mr. Ignatius deserves praise for an ending that recognizes that betrayals and mistakes have indelible consequences.”
Scott Turow
“What is so admirable about David Ignatius's novels of espionage is not merely the exquisite intrigue, the gnawing suspense or the compelling characterizations, but the fact that these books are completely original.”
