David Ignatius creates and builds upon an engagingly textured environment of spies and third world nuclear threat to create a realistic and fun espionage thriller While I d give Ignatius effort three starts for the intricacies of the fiction as literature I d move it to a solid four stars for the well woven and well paced plot The story revolves around a young Iranian scientist who sends the CIA a subtly coded message exposing Iran s efforts in developing nuclear weapons His mode of communication is the contact us link available on the CIA s public website Ignatius writes occasionally the strange people who sent anonymous messages to the CIA were for real They knew secrets they were angry at their government or the security service or maybe just at the boss down the hall In this case the message was very real and this communication becomes the launching point for Ignatius tautly written novelThe story bounces between CIA headuarters outside of Washington DC Iran London and other points in the Middles East It s in London where we learn the meaning behind the novel s title The Increment is the informal and off the books British force that s pulled into only the highest of security missions and the only forces that truly have James Bond s legendary license to kill The plot hums along and the characters while sometimes clich d are believable The main threads of the story follow an aging America CIA agent in charge of operations in Iran He s grizzled and jaded and the most morally consistent and clear of all characters in the story An old friend and colleague is a senior officer in the British spy agency who s brought in to help with the operation as it moves to Tehran The Iranian scientist is sincere and sad While not terrifically deep Ignatius crafts this character strongly enough that the reader will actually care and root for his success and safety Few characters are exclusively what they seem They re a little good and a little bad Characteristics lean towards one side or the other based on whose side they appear to support But as the plot develops it becomes clear that some larger chess pieces are orbiting around the primary charactersI don t read particularly uickly but this story I knocked off in only 3 days At times The Increment is mystery than adventure and the thrill is in the creation build up and execution of Ignatius well though through plan He smoothly slams home a twisty curvy conclusion that I wasn t expecting All in all this was a satisfying read for what it is a fun thriller with a very old school spy vibe I definitely recommend this read

Interesting book about spies fighting to stop their enemies from developing into nuclear powerOnly downside to the book is the conclusion prime minister steps out and exposes the entire operation to the media how they manage to thwart the efforts of their rival state by direct sabotage even names service responsible and then state that they will prevent any other nation from further interfering because enemy is now tamed I mean come on and this does not provoke no reaction from anyone in the world again please Imagine somebody from the government steps out and says that they sabotaged by direct attack their rivals they disclose it to the world so it is not just knowledge in the close community and everybody says Oh they blew them now gimme that pepperThese are things conflicts are ignited about I do not know what the author was thinking about but ending seems childish to say the least and seems like unnatural ending for the novel itself considering other elements described in itGood thriller but ending is deeply flawed

Crement” whose operatives carry the modern version of the double O “license to kill” But the real story is infinitely complicated than Harry understands and to get to the bottom of it he must betray his own country. The days when a stranger walks into CIA headuarters to offer vital information about an enemy state are apparently over Now that person contacts the American agency by email Still having an Iranian nuclear scientist dangle some insider info is tantalizing to veteran spooks and politicians alike Once things get moving the action shifts from Langley Virginia to London and ultimately to Tehran Plans go awry Endings are sudden and bloody Mr Ignatius seems to have a bit of insider knowledge as to how the spy agencies actually operate however this tale lacks the inscrutable subtlety of a classic LeCarre thriller
