What's the worst mistake a journalist could make? Acclaimed novelist and award-winning journalist David Ignatius has written an authentic news thriller about a reporter who dances too closely with his sources in the CIA.

Baker & Taylor
Journalist Eric Truell risks his career and his life when his source at the CIA, a maverick agent, leaks word about a private trade war between France, China, and the U.S., a competition in which his own newspaper may be playing an unwitting role

Blackwell North Amer
At The New York Mirror, Eric Truell is a rising star, a reporter savvy enough to work the political angles of Washington and brave enough to break into a room full of terrorists. While investigating a story about secret power networks in France, Truell meets a maverick CIA agent who is only too happy to leak highly sensitive and explosive stories. But as Eric's ties to the CIA deepen, he learns about a private trade war involving France, China, and the United States, a war in which his newspaper may be an unwitting player. When Eric's sources tell him there is a spy within his own paper, he is tempted to cross a dangerous professional line and risk his career - possibly even his life - to find the truth.

OK but not one of his best. Seems to have too much filler which has little to do with the plot. His later books are much better

Good book, well written, and with a nice plot. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about the world of journalism to really get all the nuances but despite that, it was a good read
