A national security specialist with three decades of government experience, Clarke has packed this page-turner with lots of state-of-the-art technical detail about drones. But the novel also raises provocative questions about the extent and risks of the current U.S. drone program, which has become much more extensive than originally anticipated. Clarke should know: He participated in the U.S. decision more than a decade ago to start using drones against terrorists.

Once again, Ignatius has come up with a riveting plot that plays on very current national security dangers and seems highly—and all too frighteningly—plausible. This time the story turns on the vulnerability of governments and financial institutions to cybercrime, surveillance and digital warfare. The book offers some fascinating glimpses into the hacker community and also into how spies are now doing battle in the digital domain.

A veteran war correspondent and author of both fiction and nonfiction, Anderson infuses the familiar story of T. E. Lawrence with fresh energy and insight, setting the famous Englishman’s exploits in the broader context of other foreign experts who also were scheming a century ago to manipulate Arab destiny. The result is a fascinating, richly detailed and especially timely book that recalls how the clash between rival empires (the British and French on one side, the German and Ottoman on the other) determined the contours of today’s still very unsettled Middle East.
