Agents of Innocence

By David Ignatius

New York: W. W. Norton. Hardcover. September 1987. First Edition (stated / full number line). One-half tan cloth binding with red paper over boards. Deckle edge. Very Good book in a Very Good jacket. Spine straight; ends bumped. Edgewear to jacket. No tears. Light foxing to top edge. Interior pristine. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 444 pages. Agents of Innocence is the book that established David Ignatius's reputation as a master of the contemporary espionage novel. On his web site, the author says about the book, "Although that book was sold as a novel, CIA officials and PLO leaders knew it was a real story. On the CIAs web site for many years, the book was listed among the recommended books about operations, with a note that said, 'Though a novel, senior officers say this book is not fiction.' I am told that at the agencys training facility near Williamsburg, known as The Farm, the book is often recommended to young recruits. Often when traveling abroad in recent years, I have been approached by agency officers who said that when they wanted to explain to a parent or spouse what the CIA really does overseas, they gave them a copy of Agents of Innocence."

For Arthur Rowe, the trip to the charity fete was a joyful step back into adolescence, a chance to forget the nightmare of the blitz and the aching guilt of having mercifully murdered his sick wife. He was surviving alone, aside from the war, until he happened to guess both the true and the false weight of the cake. From that moment, he finds himself ruthlessly hunted, the quarry of malign and shadowy forces, from which he endeavors to escape with a mind that remains obstinately out of focus. What he doesn't know is that the cake contains a secret message and he is being sought by the members of a Nazi spy ring.
