There are many books on spies and spying, but few as perceptive or rigorous as this. Full of revelations . . . .A very enjoyable read. Should be on the shelves of anyone interested in the world we live in, the threats we face, and those who are charged with keeping us safe -- Jason Burke, author of 'Al Qaeda' and 'The 9/11 Wars'
I urge spymasters new and old - but more importantly those who want to understand the role of espionage - to read this remarkably accurate and detailed account of the CIA's transition from Cold War to ISIS War, from nuclear attack to hacker attack. Stephen Grey nails the story in this exceptionably readable book -- John Macgaffin III, former Associate Deputy Director for CIA Operations
Exceptional ... a blueprint for productive, sophisticated espionage in the age of Islamist terror -- Charles Cumming * Daily Telegraph *
Convincing ... a lucid, well-written analysis -- Malcolm Rifkind * The Spectator *
Revelatory, deeply informed and subtle -- John Lloyd * The Financial Times *
Draws on an impressive array of interviews with serving intelligence officers. A page-turner for those outside the secret world, and a thought-provoker for those inside it * The Times *
Valuable and thought-provoking, breaks new ground. A good manual for the spy cadets of the future, the dangers they face and traps they may well fall into * The Guardian *
Brilliant ... a compelling portrait of espionage * Daily Mail *
