    Description

    From a hidden enclave in the maze of Tehran, an Iranian scientist who calls himself "Dr. Ali" sends an encrypted message to the CIA. It falls to Harry Pappas to decide if it's for real.

    Dr. Ali sends more secrets of the Iranian bomb program to the agency, then panics. He's being followed, but he doesn't know who's onto him, and neither does Pappas. The White House is no help---they're looking for a pretext to attack Tehran. To get his agent out, Pappas turns to a secret British spy team known as "The Increment," whose operatives carry the modern version of the double-O "license to kill." But the real story here is infinitely more complicated than he understands, and to get to the bottom of it he must betray his own country.

    The Increment is The Spy Who Came in from the Cold set in Iran, with a dose of Graham Greene's The Human Factor to highlight the subtleties of betrayal.

    Good story, awful narration

    Any additional comments?

    Ignatius does a very credible job of crafting and telling his story, with characters who are believable and who matter. But the narration of this book detracted from the story rather than enhancing it. His attempt to alter his voice for different characters, while appreciated from a more skilled narrator, here was annoying, very off-key. And his voice was tuned to hyper-dramatic, which was irritating enough as his default persona, but was even worse in that he made even scene-setting or background explaining narrative sound breathless and urgent. Like an actor trying to perform stage directions.

    The story is worth reading, but in this instance, not worth listening to.

    Slow and boring

    This is a predictable crime / espionage pot boiler made almost unbearable by a narrator who must be getting paid by the hour.
    I downloaded it to my ipod and listened to it at double speed. Like this, it sounded normal.
    David Ignatious's other books, particularly Blood Money is a much better experience

    more interesting as time goes by

    David Ignatius is my new favorite writer. This book was a fascinating story, made more so by recent events surrounding Stuxnet. Several of his books have made me think we're getting the real deal.

    Great read

    Suspenseful with an unexpected ending. After Body of Lies, I was waiting for another book by this author and this didn't disappoint.

    Now this is a GREAT book. Fantastic reader.

    If you like spy reads, this is for you. It starts with an email from Dr. Ali and goes full bore from there to the ending.Many twists and turns, makes you want to drive until the book is read. Dick Hill, the narrator, has given this book his all. He uses a different type of speaking for each character The combination of the author and the narrator make the book great. I read in the car. There were times I had to stop the narrative to digest the action. You will love this book.

    A Real Thriller

    This is a well told and gripping story. Perhaps the corruption of one of the characters in the UK Secret Service is a little far fetched, but the story is well worth the listen.

    The best Ignatius I've read so far

    I love Dick Hill's narration. He seems to have ever the slightest distance to the text, which I find relaxing. Also, he sounds a little like Lewis Black, all lending a nice post modern feel to the performance.

    I've read Body of Lies and Bloodmoney as well, and I recommend them too.

    I'm still looking for a modern Bourne Identity, but this is good along the way!

    Unbelievable plot weakened by appalling narration

    Can the voice of any author get through in a book read by Dick Hill? I had forgotten how appalling a narrator he is for any character other than a sleazy slum bag from New Jersey, or I would have avoided this one from the start. All his women wimp and whine. And how any editor worth his or her salt passed his attempts at British, German, and Middle Eastern accents in this particular book beggars belief. As does the plot and character development in The Increment . . . but that is a different matter.

    yet ANOTHER anti Bush book hidden in a thriller

    fairly good narration and overall story, the author must not know that Bush is not president anymore, many people have this affliction, it is essentially a book that whines and complains about how a few good men in the CIA ,etc. are doing their best to give information against political pressure, as if this is a recent phenomenon
