Description
In David Ignatius' s gripping new novel, spies don' t bother to steal information . . . they change it, permanently and invisibly. Graham Weber has been director of the CIA for less than a week when a Swiss kid in a dirty T-shirt walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and he has a list of agents' names to prove it. This is the moment a CIA director most dreads. Weber isn' t sure where to turn until he meets a charismatic (and unstable) young man named James Morris who runs the Internet Operations Center. He' s the CIA' s in-house geek. Weber launches Morris on a mole hunt unlike anything in spy fiction— one that takes the reader into the hacker underground of Europe and America and ends up in a landscape of paranoia and betrayal. Like the new world of cyber-espionage from which it' s drawn, The Director is a maze of deception and double-dealing— about a world where everything is written in zeroes and ones and nothing can be trusted.

      • content: Narrator George Guidall's performances are always a luxury. While his voice is distinct and easily recognizable, he's able to shape it to reflect myriad different worlds. This comes in handy in delivering David Ignatius's spy thriller about cyber-espionage. When a scruffy Swiss kid shows up in Hamburg saying the CIA computers have been hacked, Director Graham Weber must find out how and get to the bottom of the damage. From a gay nightclub in Germany to the Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland and Weber's CIA office, Guidall provides rich atmospheric interpretations to guide listeners through a world of intrigue and deceit. He offers listeners the thumping bass of music, the universal scent of currency, even the soft cushion of sinking into a leather chair. This isn't merely a narration-- this is a luxury-listening experience. J.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine

        Starred review from March 31, 2014
        In this frighteningly convincing spy thriller from Ignatius (Bloodmoney), former entrepreneur Graham Weber has a new job: director of the Central Intelligence Agency, an organization suffering in “the post-Snowden era” of whistle-blowers and cyberterrorism. During Weber’s first week on the job, Rudolf Biel walks into the U.S. consulate in Hamburg, Germany, and tells base chief K.J. “Kitten” Sandoval that “your messages can be read.” Weber sends his brilliant technologist, James Morris, director of the agency’s Information Operations Center, to Germany to meet with Biel, but Biel is shot and killed before he can be interviewed. The action revolves around the source of the leak Biel identified, which turns into a plot to hack and destroy the Bank of International Settlements. Why this bank? “Because it’s a symbol of everything that has gone wrong since 1945.” Ignatius builds palpable momentum and creates engaging, fully human characters, notably the fallible and conscientious Weber. Moreover, he writes with great authority on hackers’ technologies and motivations, as well as the history and culture of the CIA. Agent: Raphael Sagalyn, Sagalyn/ICM.
