The novel made into the major motion picture released October 2008, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe: "Clever [and] well-paced, Body of Lies is hard to put down."―John Miller, Wall Street JournalCIA soldier Roger Ferris has come out of Iraq with a shattered leg and an intense mission―to penetrate the network of a master terrorist known only as "Suleiman." Ferris's plan is inspired by a masterpiece of British intelligence during World War II: He prepares a body of lies, literally the corpse of an imaginary CIA officer who appears to have accomplished the impossible by recruiting an agent within the enemy's ranks. This scheme binds friend and foe in a web of extraordinary subtlety and complexity. When it begins to unravel, Ferris finds himself flying blind into a hurricane. His only hope is the urbane head of Jordan's intelligence service. But can Ferris trust him?

David Ignatius is a prize-winning columnist for the Washington Post and has been covering the Middle East and the CIA for nearly three decades. He has written several New York Times bestsellers, most recently The Director. He lives in Washington, D.C.From AudioFile:
When Dick Hill narrates a book that is elegantly crafted, with a challenging plot and fascinating characters, listeners are in for a treat. The politics of the Middle East after 9/11 form the backdrop as CIA Agent Roger Ferris hunts for a wily Al Qaeda fanatic known as Suleiman. Ferris has a plan that will cause Suleimans terrorist organization to self-destruct. David Ignatius, a columnist for The Washington Post, draws contemporary scenarios that might happen tomorrow, as well as utterly believable, complex villains and heroes. While Ignatiuss women characters dont ring true, offering little more than arm candy for the men, Hills performances, from that of Near East CIA Chief Ed Hoffman to Jordanian spy Hani Salaam, add dimension, subtlety, shading, and a master narrators finesse to the work as a whole.
