What People are Saying About This

"Fifteen years after he unraveled Watergate as little more than a policy-beat reporter, Woodward has lost none of his edge as one of the finest journalistic investigators of our time. . . . Woodward has succeeded brilliantly in cracking state secrets. . . ."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Bob Woodward, the master chronicler of Washington's deepest secrets, has produced an investigative record of the CIA's turbulent years under the late William Casey. . . . Veil plows more new ground than a dozen tractors in Iowa."
--U.S. News & World Report

"Veil lays bare, in a way that no reportage has done before, the power struggle between contending factions-both inside and outside the CIA-for control over the nation's foreign intelligence apparatus. . . ."
--The Washington Times
