Roger Ferris is one of the CIA's soldiers in the war on terrorism whose mission is to penetrate the network of a master terrorist. In a scheme that binds friend and foe in a web of extraordinary subtlety and complexity, Ferris finds himself flying blind into a hurricane.
From the Publisher:
Emerging from a tour of duty in Iraq with a badly injured leg, CIA soldier Roger Ferris takes on a mission to infiltrate the network of a master terrorist and bases his plan on a British intelligence operation from World War II before finding himself caught in a dangerous web and depending on a dubiously trustworthy intelligence head. Reprint.Emerging from a tour of duty in Iraq with a badly injured leg, CIA soldier Roger Ferris takes on a mission to infiltrate the network of a master terrorist and bases his plan on a British intelligence operation from World War II.
Annotation:
It's a premise that harkens back to Akira Kurosawa's YOJIMBO and Sergio Leone's A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and has historical basis in a British ploy used during World War II: when facing sinister factions, turn them against each other and against themselves. CIA agent Roger Ferris, stationed in Jordan after receiving an injury in Iraq, devises a brilliant plan to convince al-Qaeda terrorists that their leaders are cooperating with American intelligence. Ferris casts a web of lies and deception, hoping to trap the spiders, but soon he's the one who runs the risk of being eaten. Written by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, BODY OF LIES has a rare grasp of the fiendish complexities of the Middle East, and the politics and dangers of the region are drawn together into an intricate and unforgettable thriller.
