The Increment

David Ignatius
Harry Pappas head of the "Persia Desk" at the C.I.A is surprised to receive an E-mail from an Iranian scientist indicating he would like to share info on Iran's nuclear program, this is the start of this tense spy thriller. The author is a mideast expert and columnist for the Washington Post so you get the feeling you are really getting the inside scoop. The tale leads Pappas to his counterpart in British Intelligence and has them racing against time to find the Iranian Dr. before the U.S administration attacks Iran. I think this book would appeal to readers of LeCarre and those who enjoy political thrillers that are not led by action and violence only.
