Description
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.

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