review 1: I received a copy of this book for free from a goodreads giveaway. Overall it was a good book and i could tell the author knew his stuff. I guess it wasn't really my type because i never really got into it and took me a few day to read it! Someone starts killing members of a secr...

review 1: My first David Ignatius book. It was just ok. A well-known and well-connected reporter in Washington DC, Ignatius tries to wow us with his knowledge about the inner-workings of the Intelligence Community. But unfortunately his knowledge, and his ego, get in the way of story te...

review 1: I really don't know that much about David Ignatius, other than from TV as a journalist. I was interested in what kind of fiction a serious journalist would invent. This is an interesting work of fiction. The first half of the story develops slowly and deliberately. The last h...

review 1: Since I've now read all of Lee Child's Reacher novels, I've had to find some other interesting light fiction to read. A recent interest in spies and espionage led me to this novel, my introduction to David Ignatius' writing, and I was not disappointed. Ignatius is a long-time pol...

review 1: i started this expecting it to be overwrought with jargon and terminology that would render it impossible to follow if you're not 1000% well versed in every detail of current events. luckily that wasn't the case and i found it very easy to follow, mostly thanks to it being very w...

review 1: I like David Ignatius and enjoy his work for the Washington Post, but THE INCREMENT was a tough read, sort of the way US government welfare cheese is really hard to melt. David turns the "show-don't-tell" storytelling method on its head and dunks it in cold water, so we don't get...

review 1: "Reporters should not ordinarily engage in outside activities and jobs. That is especially true of connections with government, which compromise the newspaper's fundamental mission of independence and objectivity. Any deliberate violation of this policy will be regarded as a fi...

review 1: The cover of David Ignatius' "A Firing Offense" carries the following promotional blurb from former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee: "A dynamite thriller with the coolest, smartest journalist that fiction ever produced." Bradlee's known some smart journalists in his day, inclu...
