An anonymous email is sent to the CIA website: a scientist deep within Iran's nuclear programme is ready to talk. Harry Pappas, head of the Agency's Iran desk, knows that if the contact is real, he's looking at the intelligence coup of the decade.

With war imminent if he doesn't succeed, he contacts an old friend in MI6. Together they plan to identify the source and extract him from Iran for debriefing. For the job they turn to the Increment, a top secret and lethal black ops unit recruited from within the SAS.

The Increment

David Ignatius: The Increment (USA 2010)

From the Publisher:
The New York Times bestseller: "A remarkably timely and pulse-quickening tale of deception, divided loyalty, and moral haziness."- Raleigh News & Observer

Harry Pappas, chief of the CIA's Persia House, receives an encrypted message from a scientist in Tehran. But soon the source of secrets from the Iranian bomb program dries up: the scientist panics; he's being followed, but he doesn't know who's on to him, and neither does Harry. To get his agent out, Harry turns to a secret British spy team known as "The Increment," whose operatives carry the modern version of the double-O "license to kill." But the real story is infinitely more complicated than Harry understands, and to get to the bottom of it he must betray his own country.

The Increment

David Ignatius: The Increment (UK 2009)

From the Publisher:
An anonymous email arrives via the CIA's website: someone on the inside of Iran's nuclear program is apparently ready to talk. Harry Pappas, head of the Agency's Iran desk, knows that if the contact is real, he's looking at the intelligence coup of the decade. But the unconfirmed information his informant brings starts a clock ticking in Washington: the government hawks want to use it to justify a pre-emptive strike against Iran.

Harry lost a son in Iraq, and has no desire to start another war on incomplete intelligence. Finding no allies in Washington, Harry contacts an old friend in MI-6, and together they plan to identify the source, extract him from Iran and debrief him before it is too late. For such a job they must turn to the 'Increment': a shadowy, elite group of British undercover intelligence operatives recruited from the SAS. Racing against the threat of war and facing a potential treason charge should his actions come to light, Harry is going to discover that his is not the only game in town.

David Ignatius: The Increment. An elite Black Ops unit races to prevent nuclear war. Quercus, ISBN: 9781847249357 (June, 2009), 392 p., £17.99.

The Increment

David Ignatius: The Increment (USA 2009)

From the Publisher:
By the author of the best-selling Body of Lies, a novel that takes the reader inside the most volatile secret of the twenty-first century: the Iranian nuclear program.

From a hidden enclave in the maze of Tehran, an Iranian scientist who calls himself "Dr. Ali" sends an encrypted message to the CIA. It falls to Harry Pappas to decide if it's for real. Dr. Ali sends more secrets of the Iranian bomb program to the agency, then panics. He's being followed, but he doesn't know who's onto him, and neither does Pappas. The White House is no help-they're looking for a pretext to attack Tehran.

To get his agent out, Pappas turns to a secret British spy team known as "The Increment," whose operatives carry the modern version of the double-O "license to kill." But the real story here is infinitely more complicated than he understands, and to get to the bottom of it he must betray his own country.

The Increment is The Spy Who Came In from the Cold set in Iran, with a dose of Graham Greene's The Human Factor to highlight the subtleties of betrayal.

David Ignatius: The Increment. A Novel. W. W. Norton, ISBN: 9780393065046 (May, 2009), 390 p., $26.95.
