Bloodmoney; David Ignatius

Bloodmoney: A Novel of EspionageBloodmoney: A Novel of Espionage by David Ignatius
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's good to know that the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as our War on Terror, have allowed the spy thriller genre to flourish. While this is not up to the level of John Le Carre's works, Bloodmoney is a decent addition, with exotic locales, double (and triple) crossings, naive dupes and "implacable" foes. While this does not appear to be part of a series, I wouldn't mind reading more about Cyril and Sophie.
