Agents of Innocence by David Ignatius
"Here is the fundamental problem with this book: The author would rather take you through years of Middle East history, especially in Lebanon between 1969 and 1983, while weaving in characters caught up in the events who are neither heroes nor villain" Read more of this review »

“Here in Cuba death can be a temporary matter.”
Paul Vidich, The Good Assassin

“He dressed quickly, Colt pistol stuffed under his belt, ears alert to the several voices below.

He looked through the kitchen, through the open library doors, and beyond to the swimming pool. The old caretaker had a lawn rake that he carefully extended in long reaching motions onto the surface of the water. There was something floating in the middle of the pool. On second glance, Mueller saw that it was a body. Mueller made his way through”
