The Director

Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 13 hours 34 minutes


In David Ignatius' s gripping new novel, spies don't bother to steal information . . . they change it, permanently and invisibly. Graham Weber has been director of the CIA for less than a week when a Swiss kid in a dirty T-shirt walks into the American consulate in Hamburg and says the agency has been hacked, and he has a list of agents' names to prove it. This is the moment a CIA director most dreads. Weber isn' t sure where to turn until he meets a charismatic (and unstable) young man named James Morris who runs the Internet Operations Center. He's the CIA's in-house geek. Weber launches Morris on a mole hunt unlike anything in spy fiction-- one that takes the reader into the hacker underground of Europe and America and ends up in a landscape of paranoia and betrayal. Like the new world of cyber-espionage from which it' s drawn, The Director is a maze of deception and double-dealing-- about a world where everything is written in zeroes and ones and nothing can be trusted.

    Fantastic! I knew with narration by George Guidall that it would be good no matter what, but even if they had chosen a bad narrator instead, this story would still be excellent! This would make a great film adaptation. I felt like I could actually see all the characters playing it out in my mind. Intriguing from the start, along with top notch narration. Perfect Match!
