I wish the character of Jean had been explored later in the novel more and that perhaps we had seen her repeat certain behaviours. It seemed a very quick departure from her character to that of Maggie.
Whose arc, though important, seemed an odd place to end the book. ISBN: Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

A quick, gritty and in some places very difficult read, but with a very unique perspective. What did you think? Thank-you for reading, Katie x.
You Might Also Like As a former and celebrated CIA guy, he says he has to vet all he writes past his former masters; I believe it. This being said, if you take the time to read his many interviews and his articles in Vanity Fair, The Atlantic and Time Magazine, you'll understand exactly where he is coming from. Relieved of that limitation, he crafted an entire book with that premise.

What are we to make of his insinuated theme? In the land of spooks, especially ex-spooks, either you take a very paranoid perspective and figure that all of them lie or are still secretly working for the CIA or else, like me, take the view that their words should be set in the context of other material that makes itself public.

So, are his claims believable? Sure they are. The Iranian's have had it in for the American's ever since deposing the Shah.
Well, maybe not every single Iranian, but certainly the student league, that led the overthrow, of which the dim witted but dangerous lunatic, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was front and center. In the more recent time frame, the USS Vincennes shot down an Iranian airliner, on July 3, , killing all on board, mostly woman and children. Think the Iranian's don't want revenge?
Think again. In that part of the world, history is measured by very long strides; they can wait many years and when the time is ripe, seek blood for blood. That's the way things are settled. Let's re-examine what Baer claims. Links were made between Osama bin Laden and Iranians. They are on opposite sides of the Islamic divide, Shia and Sunni and normally they don't break bread with each; they'd rather break bones than bread. So, is the enemy of my enemy suddenly the matchmaker to link these two antithetical strains?source url

Baer thinks so and he's not alone. Sure they could have; they had motivation and opportunity. Before you examine where the fiction hides the truth, you have to know that the inclusion of the former head of the FBI anti-terrorism desk in New York City is based very closely to the real story; so close it's just about a carbon copy. John O'Neill was hot on the tail of Al Qaeda and had just about figured out who was who before he met his untimely end in one of the Twin Towers; nasty karma for a true patriot.
