Description


When a daring, high-tech CIA operation goes wrong and is disavowed, Michael Dunne sets out for revenge.


CIA operations officer Michael Dunne is tasked with infiltrating an Italian news organization that smells like a front for an enemy intelligence service. Headed by an American journalist, the self-styled bandits run a cyber operation unlike anything the CIA has seen before. Fast, slick, and indiscriminate, the group steals secrets from everywhere and anyone, and exploits them in ways the CIA can neither understand nor stop.


Dunne knows it’s illegal to run a covert op on an American citizen or journalist, but he has never refused an assignment and his boss has assured his protection. Soon after Dunne infiltrates the organization, however, his cover disintegrates. When news of the operation breaks and someone leaks that Dunne had an extramarital affair while on the job, the CIA leaves him to take the fall. Now a year later, fresh out of jail, Dunne sets out to hunt down and take vengeance on the people who destroyed his life.

Praise For…


A delicious layer cake of a book—tension, suspense, betrayal, and revenge, all floating on a bedrock of total authenticity…David Ignatius is the best in the world at this stuff.
— Lee Child

David Ignatius once again takes readers behind the scenes of America’s most secretive bureaucracy, revealing in fiction what could never be declassified in fact. The Paladin is yet another stirring read from a revered reporter and a gifted storyteller.

— Joe Scarborough, cohost of MSNBC’s Morning Joe

For me nothing is more intriguing than life inside our intelligence agencies. In The Paladin, David Ignatius uses his decades’ worth of reporting experience to take us there in this fast-moving, jaw-dropping drama that reads like it was ripped from the headlines. I recommend you grab a copy and hold on tight for the entire thrilling ride.

— Brian Kilmeade, cohost of Fox News Channel’s Fox and Friends
